Our campaign is about making cycling in York safe, convenient, and accessible for everyone. We wanted to provide a vision of what a truly cycle-friendly city could be, and so 42 Ways to Transform York was born.

Whilst data quoted in 42 Ways to Transform York no.32 was correct at time of processing, a subsequent revision by the Department of Transport has revised the data provided for the period from 2000 to 2020 with the publication of Road traffic estimates in Great Britain: 2021. The digital version on this page has been updated to correct this, however earlier printed versions will not reflect this. No.32 should read: “Traffic has grown 36% since the nineties and is forecast to grow 17-56% depending on the scenario, by 2050”. Still significant, still unsustainable.
