The Foundation for Integrated Transport was established by the late Dr Simon Norton in 2014 to promote sustainable and transformational transport solutions.
Simon’s vision was a world:
- where humans have a right to get around without a car;
- where people can travel with minimum impact on other people’s lives and the environment;
- where trains and buses are integrated and safe and attractive routes are provided for walking and cycling; and
- where barriers to transport justice are removed, by means which include volunteering and social enterprise.
FIT’s focus on transport as a basic human right and climate change reflects Simon’s priorities and serves as a memorial to him.
