Strategy & Policy

On behalf of the North East Joint Transport Committee, Transport North East is responsible for delivering policies and strategies that move the North East closer to becoming a green, healthy, dynamic and thriving region. 

The North East Transport Plan sets out our aspirations for travel up until 2035. A series of accompanying strategies are in development.
