FIT seeks to fund people and projects that will make a really big difference to transport patterns. We favour projects directed to achieve change on the ground, as opposed to reports and policy reviews.

  • Reducing car use for travel to leisure destinations
  • Supporting initiatives that change public attitudes to the car
  • Transforming the quality of the bus service in the UK
  • Supporting local communities that are campaigning to keep their bus services in the face of austerity cuts
  • Supporting grass roots community action for sustainable transport
  • Encouraging organisations active on environmental and social issues to adopt transport as one of their priorities
  • Making access to public transport as much of a human right as access to health or education
  • Making new and existing residential and business developments public transport friendly
  • Supporting the development of a high quality network of coach services for long distance travel, to complement rail services
