Maybe the City Council could promote local rail travel between Longton, Stoke, Kidsgrove, Longport and Etruria? more charging points for electric vehicles? car sharing lanes (after COVID)? cycle paths? utilise the Greenway? Co-ordinated Local Transport using Maps/Apps to make travel by Bus/Train/Cycle/Foot and Car a simple co-ordinated way to travel throughout Stoke on Trent.

Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP on Twitter: "We're investing £29m from our  #TransformingCitiesFund into @SoTCityCouncil's transport network, which  will help people: 👉 get around easier 👉 access job opportunities 👉 use  greener

Walking and cycling routes will be implemented towards Etruria Valley and Trentham Lakes, and a new cycling and pedestrian link will be installed at Vernon Road – we also have the Greenway that could be further developed and utilised and integrated / co-ordinated to give Stoke on Trent a green solution, reduce congestion and Stoke’s Carbon footprint.
