The Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) aims to improve productivity and spread prosperity through investment in public and sustainable transport in some of the largest English city regions, including the Sheffield City Region.
Encouraging an increase in journeys made by low carbon, sustainable modes is a key objective of the Fund.
Additionally, the Fund aims to support wider cross-cutting priorities such as:
- improving access to work and delivering growth
- tackling air pollution and reducing carbon emissions
- delivering apprenticeships and improving skills
The Department for Transport (DfT) allocated funding via two tranches. Sheffield City Region were one of ten authorities that could bid for the first tranche of £60 million and one of twelve authorities that could bid for the second tranche of £1.28bn.
