The Bartlett School of Planning launch S-MAP 2030 North West

5 July 2013

The Bartlett School of Planning has launched S-MAP 2030 North West - an action plan for seamless mobility in the North West of England.


The document provides a case study application of the wider SYNAPTIC project (Synergy of New Advanced Public Transport Solutions Improving Connectivity in North-West Europe), funded by EU INTERREG IVB, and is launched at the SYNAPTIC 'Irrigating the Regions' conference in Manchester on 18 June 2013.  Focused on the needs of the traveller, SYNAPTIC seeks to improve the overall door-to-door journey so that journeys become coordinated, integrated and easy to use, with points of friction between different stages removed or reduced. 

The project brings together 52 partner organisations from 8 countries in North West Europe and comprises a study team from The Bartlett School of Planning including Sir Peter Hall, Iqbal Hamiduddin, Peter Jones, Robin Hickman, Charles King and Colin Osborne.

An animated view of the potential 'seamless public transport journey in 2030' can be found here.
