 Herts Orbital Transit proposal by HCS can cut County's carbon footprint

Trams are highly efficient public transport.  Trams are electric, so emit no fumes. On May 1st 2019 MP's declared a climate change emergency.  HCC has also done so.  How will the county change its strategy?


Trams are fast reliable comfortable

Easy and attractive travel. 

Trams avoid road congestion with their own routes and priority at road junctions. .


Trams make places attractive for people

Routes through town centres.  Integrated with local buses.  Links to where most people want to go.


Trams reduce car journeys and road traffic

Trams change travel habits.  Because trams are attractive and reliable, car use drops dramatically and so does road traffic.  Air quality improves.
