Peninsula Transport

Our vision is to transform transport across the peninsula, enabling our society and economy to thrive and our unique and outstanding environment to flourish

Peninsula Transport is a shadow sub-national transport body, bringing together the five lead transport authorities in the peninsula; Cornwall, Devon, Plymouth, Somerset and Torbay to transform the economic potential of the region.

Working closely with co-opted members and key stakeholders from the private and public sector, the partnership is responsible for defining and delivering the strategic transport priorities for the peninsula.

The South West peninsula is an amazing place to live and work. Transport connections are vital for much of our activity and so our vision is for an enhanced transport system: more efficient, resilient and cleaner, helping to make the peninsula even better.
