Total Transport Grant
We have been successfully awarded a Total Transport Grant from the Department for Transport. The intention as stated in the bid, is to create a cross-agency Passenger Transport Partnership. Our successful bid was one of 37 Nationally to undertake an investigative study to improve transport integration in the area. More details can be found in the Northern Lincolnshire Total Transport Pilot Fund Application (PDF).
Community Transport Association and Urban Transport Group. National and Regional Total Transport partners provided information for this report.
The Envisioning Workshop took place in September 2015. The purpose of the workshop was to launch the Total Transport initiative in North East Lincolnshire. Explore the issues affecting accessible transport. Identify the potential benefits from ‘integration’. Exchange information between interested parties. Help shape the local Total Transport programme and next steps. Read the Total Transport NE Lincs Workshop Report (PDF).
The total transport board meet quarterly and consists of Lead Officers from North East Lincolnshire Council, North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, Care Plus Group and ENGIE. Other key partners have the opportunity to feed into the governance arrangement through providing work-stream expertise. The Board recognise the importance of public engagement and a quarterly Total Transport Forum has been established.
The Northern Regional Group is made up of successful Total Transport grant winners in North of England. The aims of the group include sharing best practice and knowledge, seeing if by, working together, and with our key stakeholders, we can assist each other with the implementation of our bids, to collect the data necessary to make a case for total transport and act as a regional voice.
We recently acted as a regional voice by holding the Total Transport North Conference 2015. Link to twitter feed @TTNG15
The group identified 4 common goals
- Integrated smart health transport
- Common booking systems
- One stop shop
- How do we pay for the vision
The importance of working together was supported by the Under Secretary of State for Transport Andrew Jones who said: “We believe this integration might improve passenger transport in isolated communities by allocating existing resources more efficiently”.
The group meets quarterly and is made up of representatives from partners and existing user groups who use accessible and caring transport. If you would like to join this group please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

The maps below provide an assessment of public transport accessibility to a number of destinations within North East Lincolnshire. The maps are produced using GIS software and enables Transport Planners to produce before and after maps of travel times to key destinations. The software can also produce accurate reports to demonstrate, for example, the total number of working age people who can reach certain key destinations in a defined maximum travel time as a result of a change to the public transport network. The software helps to understand the impact on local communities of any potential changes to the local public transport network and helps to demonstrate any areas of the Borough with poor transport accessibility.
