Welcome

Transport for the North is the first Sub-national Transport Body in England, formed to transform the transport system across the North and drive economic growth and prosperity for our people and businesses.

We bring together the North’s 20 Local Transport Authorities and business leaders and enable them to speak as the North, with one voice on transport investment. Together, we identify the infrastructure needed to drive transformational growth in our region and rebalance decades of underinvestment. We work with Network Rail, Highways England and HS2 Ltd, and draw our powers down from central Government, rather than up from local government.

Our Strategic Transport Plan, published in February 2019, sets out the long-term investment priorities for the North, establishing a shared vision where modern transport connections underpin more opportunities and an excellent quality of life.

By adding strategic value on a pan-regional scale we can ensure that funding and strategy decisions about transport in the North are informed by local knowledge and requirements.

We are at an exciting and critical stage in our journey, making now a great time to join our team. Not only will a career at Transport for the North provide you with professional challenges, it will also give you the opportunity to be part of an organisation that is shaping the future.

If you have the experience, passion and commitment to drive our shared vision of a vibrant and growing economic region we look forward to hearing from you.

John Cridland
Independent Chairman of Transport for the North
