At the moment, I'm sitting in a session on Integrated Transport Authorities. Hearing about Merseyside and what's been achieved, I am increasingly convinced that this is excellent opportunity for Bristol and the hinterland.
There is cross-party support within Bristol, which is great. However, there is less enthusiasm in the authorities surrounding Bristol, across all political shades. We need to find ways of persuading our neighbours of the advantages and what integrated transport could mean for them.
