Why does Southampton need Travel Hubs?
Southampton City Council have been awarded funding from the Department for Transport's Transforming Cities Fund to help improve how people move in and around the city with the goal of improving sustainable and active travel for residents. Travel Hubs are one of the ways to achieve this goal by making sustainable modes of travel more easily accessed and better connected to improve onward journeys.
