A message from the publisher

Peter Stonham
23 March 2020

This magazine passed its 30th anniversary last year. When it was launched, the title was chosen to express our mission to bring together for the first time in a dedicated medium the range of ingredients that make up the local transport agenda, in a way most relevant to those working in this sector. 

There’s never been a shortage of immediate matters to write about, and issues to consider at the cutting edge of the subject. 

We’ve also explored the changing context for local transport in terms of politics, financing, social and economic trends, lifestyle changes and more. In recent years we’ve increasingly reflected the huge topic of climate change, the concerns about the human health impact of emissions, and choices of travel behaviour.

But up to now we’ve never had to tackle the issue of how the very future of human life is casting a dark shadow over transport activity – along with many other dimensions of our daily lives.

LTT cannot cover every dimension of the current COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on transport, but our coverage will strive to include as wide a set of issues and implications as we can with an eye on the short, medium and longer terms. 

We’ll also be bringing you new ways to share discussion with us in a period without the rich pattern of conferences, seminars and other events that we have all become so used to. 

In the meantime, we can only keep our fingers crossed that the exceptional and unprecedented measures being taken to win control over the virus will be successful, and express our sincere hope for the health and wellbeing of all our readers.
