Background Information

Transport 2000 describes itself as "the independent national body concerned with sustainable transport. It looks for answers to transport problems and aims to reduce the environmental and social impact of transport by encouraging less use of cars and more use of public transport, walking and cycling." Undertaking campaigning, lobbying and research, the organisation (company no. 1512347) is a coalition of 30 national bodies (see below). A charitable arm also exists, the Transport 2000 Trust (charity no. 1101929, company no. 4943428). It also has a close working relationship with its sister body, Transform Scotland. In 2007, the body absorbed Road Block, the anti-roads campaign group, which had been launched two years previously. Source: www.transport2000.org.uk (accessed in 2007); www.roadblock.org.uk
