How to create liveable communities

A liveable city is one where people want to live, work, play and visit. In terms of transport, this means being an accessible city free from congestion and pollution. Bristol has ambitions to be a city where people walking, riding a bike and using public transport are far more common, sharing space with people driving slowly.
