The NI Transport Working Group (TWG) is a coalition of organisations aiming to make transport in Northern Ireland more sustainable. This aim is achieved by sharing good practice, discussing issues and latest developments, and providing a platform to develop and advocate shared policy positions.

The TWG promotes an integrated, transparent, evidence–based and strategic approach to transport planning and operation. It believes that the application of such an approach at all levels of administration, from the Executive to local councils, will create policy priorities and new investment choices that will stimulate modal change in the travelling public from private car to more sustainable modes of transport.

The TWG believes that best practice transport planning and appraisal approaches, including the proper consideration of cross–sectoral benefits in a number of key areas (including health and well–being, economic development, environmental protection, energy security, social justice, mobility and integrated policy–making) will naturally lead to the development of a more sustainable transport system.

The TWG aims to inform, stimulate and shape the debate around transport and the nature of transport and will work with other NGOs, public sector organisations and political parties across Northern Ireland to try and achieve its aims.
