The Travel and Transport Working Group is looking at the role transport plays in the wellbeing, of our staff, students, and environment. The group is exploring how the interventions, incentives, and ideas, we can implement, could make our campuses more environmentally friendly, and economically efficient. We want to be the most active travel-friendly campus in the UK by improving cycle and walking infrastructure, reducing single-occupancy car journeys, and making a cultural shift to wider use of digital technologies.
Chair of the Travel and Transport Working Group
James Coe, Head of Sustainability, Policy, and Civic Engagement
James Coe is Head of Sustainability, Policy, and Civic Engagement at the University of Liverpool where advises the Senior Leadership Team on issues of higher education policy. He previously worked at the Community Transport Association where he championed access to inclusive transport options.
It is really that the services in my area support the student and staff experience and enable the University to deliver the key objectives set out in Strategy 2026. Understanding the role that travel and transport play in people’s daily lives and how this impacts how they may feel about work and study is important to me and the Travel and Transport Group. Enabling sustainable travel options and facilities, which help minimise the impact on the environment is at the heart of the group's work. This group will support staff and students to walk and cycle where they can, have access to a fair parking system where they cannot, and with our partners, develop our transport infrastructure to become the most active travel-friendly campus in the UK.Carol Costello, Director of People and Services
