Transport policy in the UK has been the focus of much deliberation and reformulation in recent years. While a ten year £180 billion spending plan is now in place this dies not, nor should it, preclude the ongoing debate over transport's future and the principles with which it should be shaped. This paper presents a set of such principles which has been produced by the Transport Visions Network. The Network is a virtual community of some 250 young professionals that is exploring the future of transport in the twenty-first century. Having taken a long-term view in its deliberations, the Network has conceived twelve principles relating to the topics of: accessibility; mobility; costs; environment; trip type; health and safety; electronic communication; land use; reliability; social participation; stakeholders; and information.
