The Bristol Method is a knowledge-transfer programme aimed at helping people in other cities understand and apply the lessons that Bristol has learned in becoming a more sustainable city, not just in 2015 but in the last decade.

Each module of the Bristol Method is presented as an easy-to-digest ‘how to’ guide on a particular topic, which use Bristol’s experiences as a case study. The modules contain generic advice and recommendations that each reader can tailor to their own circumstances.

This module focusses on public transport, and follows Bristol's journey towards creating a more sustainable transport network. The report discusses the successes of Bristol's solutions to its transport problems, and also explains the challenges Bristol has faced - giving advice to other cities that are aiming to improve the sustainability of their transport systems.
