60 Seconds with Modeshift Convention Speaker Bridget Fox

Bridget Fox is a Sustainable Transport Campaigner representing the Campaign for Better Transport. She spoke at the Modeshift Convention about 'Practical policies for cutting car dependency.’

How long have you been involved with Modeshift and in what capacity? We are long term Modeshift supporters. I've been in post for the last 3 years, promoting sustainable transport and fighting car dependency.

If you could only choose to promote one way to travel, what would it be and why? It's really difficult to say! Multimodal trips are the reality. Bus is a critical mode to connect communities.

Tell us something we didn’t know about you? I recently started cycling again after 30 years! Thanks to a mix of bike hire schemes and quietways.

What’s your biggest work achievement to date? Lots! We have secured more funding for environmental improvements to Highways England roads, more funding for e-cargo bikes - and the Welsh Assembly recently agreed with our evidence that road maintenance should take priority over new road building. Seeking support for sustainable transport reinforced in the new National Planning Policy Framework was also a win!

What do you do for fun? Exploring European cities on foot with my partner.
