Transport Hubs

The Transport Hubs programme delivered a network of locations that, through the provision of highly visible, easily recognisable features, facilities and branding, enables users to enjoy trouble-free access to a wide range of destinations across the Leeds City Region, as well as achieving a step change in the quality of the interchange experience.

LTP3 Proposal 14 envisaged a strategy to develop a high level of integration and interchange between public transport services and with other travel modes. 

The philosophy is that access to a transport hub provides easy access to the whole transport network. Hubs are envisaged as locations on the core public transport network easily accessible by bus, rail (where a station facility is provided), cycle, walking, taxi and car. Hubs can be largely defined as places where interchange already takes place and/or where there are adjacent services and facilities which make them destinations in their own right. 

The Transport Hubs Programme aims to address current user uncertainties regarding how best to access the core transport system and overcome any reluctance to interchange between services and modes.

There are currently two strands to the Hub programme:
