What is CityConnect?

CityConnect is one of the many projects supporting improvements to sustainable and active travel delivered by West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

At CityConnect our aim is to encourage more people to travel by bike. We’ve built high quality cycle infrastructure such as the Leeds to Bradford Cycle Superhighway, upgraded canal towpaths and we are continuing to improve infrastructure across West Yorkshire. However, we know that there’s more that can be done. We also offer support through engagement initiatives such as cycle training, cycle challenges, business and school support and behaviour change campaigns.

CityConnect is funded by the Department for Transport’s Cycle City Ambition Grant – money ring-fenced for cycling and active travel improvements.

CityConnect aims to:

To achieve this both infrastructure and activity based projects are taking place across Leeds, York, Bradford, Wakefield and Huddersfield Centres and along the region’s canal towpaths, which provide key connections between local towns. You can find out more about all of the individual projects taking place on our Projects page.

We’re working with businesses, schools and communities to make active travel the easiest and most attractive option for getting around and to realise the vision of ‘more people cycling and walking more often.

Making these routes accessible and useable to everyone involves asking for feedback and input from the local public at all stages of the CityConnect scheme.

Take a look at the rest of the CityConnect website to find out more about how we can support you to cycle more often.
