Transport

I want to see getting to work, visiting friends or making a trip to the shops to be as convenient as possible. Whether you prefer to use the train, buses, tram, cycle or get around on foot, improving Sutton’s transport links will benefit everyone, by making us better connected, bringing new business to the area and making Sutton greener.

"We greatly appreciate all the work Tom Brake is doing on the Southern Rail crisis - it is well recognised that he is one of the most engaged on this issue and truly representing his constituents", Emily Yates, Co-founder and campaign co-ordinator for Association of British Commuters. 

You can read about my recent transport track record here including my campaign to "Sack Southern, bring back the night bus and the Tram to Sutton. 

 

High-quality public transport is essential to building sustainable communities and the local and national economy. We, therefore, need to build a transport system fit for the 21st century.

 

OUR PLAN FOR TRANSPORT

  • Invest in improvements for new train stations, modernising train lines and improving access for disabled people at stations like Carshalton Beeches.

 

  • Establish Government-run companies to take over failing franchises (like Southern) and continue to campaign for TfL to run suburban rail services in London.  

 

  • Proceed with the development of large-scale transport projects, including Crossrail 2.

 

  • Continue to oppose the expansion of any London airport, including Heathrow.

 

  • Introduce a new Young Person’s Bus Discount Card, for young people aged 16–21, giving a two thirds discount on bus travel – allowing young people to access education, apprenticeships and work.
