Webinar 2 – Encouraging and enabling modal shift through community engagement

Date: 23 Jun, 2021

Region: All

Type: Webinar

10:00 – 11:45am

This webinar will explore how community rail can support modal shift from private car use to rail, other public transport, and active travel, highlighting community-led activity alongside initiatives from the wider rail industry, government and beyond.

It will consider the insights community rail can offer and the potential role the movement can play in delivering the community engagement and empowerment needed to encourage modal shift. The aim will be to highlight the current opportunities to develop and maximise the benefits of an integrated, multi-modal transport network, and discuss how members can work effectively to make an impact locally to support positive behaviour change.
