Plaid Cymru’s vision is of Wales as an interconnected community of communities, resilient, prosperous, healthy, and environmentally sound. Greener, joined-up and effective public transport systems have an essential role to play in achieving this goal.
Increased use of public transport will reduce traffic pollution and congestion. It will also contribute to the sustainability of local bus routes and the viability of many rural communities.
We want to move Wales away from a system dominated by petrol and diesel-driven cars towards more sustainable transportation, aiming to halve the proportion of journeys made by car by 2030. We will invest in recharging infrastructure to encourage the take-up of electric vehicles.
