We are currently meeting on Zoom – though we hope to get back to face-to-face meetings when we can. We will probably still have many of our speakers joining us online and we hope to have the facility for others to also join via the internet.

Once face-to-face meetings resume, we will be at West Offices, Station Rise, York, YO1 6GA.

Anyone is welcome to come along to see what our meetings are like – but we ask people to join us if they want to continue to attend.

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 5.30.

Our next meeting


Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st March. Christian Vassie will give a presentation on how Dijon tackled the task of persuading residents to support and use their new tram system and how collaboration between authorities helped to reduce the cost of setting it up.

There will be a short video as part of this presentation which you can watch in advance by clicking on this link or clicking on the picture.

This meeting will also be a members’ forum where members will have a chance to discuss local transport issues and highlight any problems.

Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings – just contact one of our committee members. The links are on the contact page.
