answer text <p>Department for Transport published statistics show that the number of passengers using public transport is fairly stable at Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton over the last ten years.</p><p> </p><p>Government policy is that the provision and funding of surface access infrastructure and services to airports is primarily the responsibility of the airport operator unless there are significant non-airport user benefits, in which case the Government would consider making a funding contribution.</p><p> </p><p>As part of their Surface Access Strategies we expect airports to set targets for increasing the proportion of journeys made to the airport by public transport for both airport workers and passengers, and put in place a strategy to achieve those targets.</p><p> </p><p>In our Aviation Strategy consultation, we are proposing a number of measures that aim to better support airports in achieving their mode share ambitions, including uprating Airport Transport Forums so that local and central Government, airports, and transport providers have the opportunity to contribute appropriately to the delivery and monitoring of airports environmental targets.</p>

answer text <p>The government has recently announced a new 16-17 railcard, which will offer savings of 50% on all rail services run by franchised train operating companies managed by the Department for Transport. This will help make travel more affordable for those making their way to school, college and work.</p><p> </p><p>Concessionary travel legislation enables local authorities to offer local travel concessions such as free or discounted travel to young people. In 2016/17, 13 of the 89 Travel Concessionary Authorities (TCAs) in England, outside of London, offered some form of youth concession, with bus operators in 76 of the 89 TCA areas also offering a youth concession on a commercial basis. In total, youth concessions were offered in 77 of the 89 TCA areas outside of London. In addition, there is a statutory scheme for certain eligible children to receive free school transport.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Following the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework in July 2018, the Government has committed to revising planning practice guidance in line with this. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is working closely with the Department for Transport, on guidance relating to sustainable transport and accessibility which will address shared space schemes and inclusive spaces. The publication of the Inclusive Transport Strategy in July 2018, led to a pause on the shared space schemes at design stage. The Department for Transport are currently working with the Scottish Government and Transport Scotland to undertake research on the issue of inclusive street design. The conclusions and recommendations of the research will then feed into further work to produce updated guidance on street design.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
