The Route to Tomorrow’s Journeys

12 July 2019

Solving The UK’s Transport Policy Problems 

The evening of 26th June saw the MCIA launch its new policy document, The Route to Tomorrow’s Journeys, at the London Transport Museum, Covent Garden.

An attentive audience comprising government officials, local authority members, transport planners and other interest parties, heard the Minister for Business & Innovation, Andrew Stephenson MP, present the future of personal mobility and the role that Powered Light Vehicles (PLVs) can play. 

Also speaking were Andy Eastlake, Managing Director of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, Dr Richard Barrett, Reader in Industrial Design at the University of Liverpool and Tony Campbell, CEO of the MCIA.

The Route to Tomorrow’s Journeys presents a compelling case for PLVs and addresses many of the challenges identified in the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenge focussing on the Future of Mobility.  In particular, it draws on evidence and analysis from respected transport research groups that demonstrates the advantages of this overlooked travel mode, through journey time savings for users, as well as environmental benefits for urban dwellers as a whole.

The MCIA team were excited by the positive response at the event and also by the fact that our industry is the first to respond to the “Grand Challenge”. We are confident that this activity has once again raised the Association’s profile and level of inclusiveness with decision makers, after some time in the wilderness.
