We provide local authorities with funding for local transport projects.

These projects must:

  • support our economic priorities for jobs and growth, for example by providing access to City Regions, Enterprise Zones, local growth zones and regeneration areas
  • provide safe and affordable access to employment sites
  • provide safe and easy to use transport to key facilities and services
  • connect communities
  • encourage healthier and sustainable travel
  • support  delivery of the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013
  • consider the safeguarding of vulnerable groups.

Grants are available annually.

In 2017 – 2018 we will be distributing £20m in grants from the Local Transport Fund to 46 schemes across 20 local authorities.
