Sustainable transport

In May 2019 the States of Jersey declared a climate emergency and agreed the aim to be carbon neutral by 2030. 

Over 50% of Jersey's greenhouse gas emissions come from transport. Road transport alone accounts for 32%. Reducing our reliance on petrol and diesel cars will play a major role in our response to the climate emergency. Finding ways to encourage more walking, cycling and use of public transport will have many benefits, including:

  • helping tackle climate change
  • enabling Islanders to become more active and healthy
  • improving local air quality 
  • easing congestion on our roads

Sustainable Transport Policy

In July 2019 it was agreed that a new Sustainable Transport Policy was needed by the end of the year. Work is currently underway on this. This strategy will look at the following areas of transport in the Island, including:

  • active travel (walking and cycling)
  • public transport
  • road safety
  • parking
  • network management (controlling the movement of traffic on the roads)
  • asset management (maintaining and repairing the roads)
  • future technologies (autonomous vehicles)

The Sustainable Transport Policy will set the future vision for transport in Jersey. It will direct all future transport policies and set out the role transport will play in tackling the climate emergency.

Sustainable transport consultation

In October 2019 we asked for your views on the big issues around transport in Jersey. We're now reviewing the more than 1,300 submissions.

Your views will be fed into the development of the new Sustainable Transport Policy. They will also help identify priority areas for further work and public engagement in 2020.
