Exploring the challenges and opportunities for transport in the Cardiff City Region as we move towards the “new normal”.

Mobility in Our Fast-growing City: What should the future of transport look like for the Cardiff City Region?

Our panel of transport experts and local leaders discuss how to create a region-wide travel network that works for everybody who lives and works in the capital.

Is it time for Cardiff to have a congestion charge? What are the politics of big changes to the transport system?

The panel will explore the challenges and opportunities for transport in the Cardiff City Region as we move from the Covid-19 crisis and towards the ‘new normal’.

We look at plans for the region and delve into what lessons can be learned from successful transport solutions from further afield.
