People in the West Yorkshire town of Otley are being asked for their views on the location and facilities of a new shared transport hub.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA), in partnership with Leeds City Council, is asking the public for their views on the proposed location of the new hub — at North Parade Car Park or Courthouse Street Car Park — and on what services residents, businesses and other potential users would like to see.

The car parks are being considered for the new hub as represent the nearest available space to the bus station, about a three to five minute walk away, said WYCA and Leeds City Council.

“A shared transport hub is a recognisable location providing access to a range of transport and supporting services, along with enhanced facilities to support sustainable travel choices, increase accessibility, and reduce reliance on cars and other privately owned vehicles,” they explain.

The size of a hub and the features on offer will vary depending on the location, but could include links to public transport, shared transport - such as bike hire and car clubs - and bike storage, alongside travel information, and community amenities, such as parcel delivery lockers and co-working space.

Services could include: Electric car club vehicles; Secure cycle parking; E-bike charging; Electric vehicle (EV) charging; Planting and seating; Bike repair facilities; Directional signage about the area; Parcel delivery lockers; Public bike hire; and Public cargo bike share.

The scheme is being funded through the City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement (CRSTS).

The deadline for the consultation is 4 February.
