Future Transport Zones evaluation

NatCen has been commissioned by the Department for Transport (DfT) to carry out the national evaluation of the Future Transport Zones (FTZ) programme. The FTZ programme involves innovative interventions being trialled in four areas of the country. It aims to bring together cross-cutting insights from local evaluations being conducted in each FTZ area about how to design and implement successful interventions.

We have been commissioned by the Department for Transport (DfT) to carry out the national evaluation of the Future Transport Zones (FTZ) programme. The FTZ programme involves innovative transport interventions being trialled in four areas of the country: the West Midlands, Derby and Nottingham, the West of England and the Solent area (Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire).

The national evaluation aims to bring together cross-cutting insights from local evaluations being conducted in each FTZ area about how to design and implement successful interventions.

As part of the national evaluation and to complement research activities taking place locally, NatCen will be conducting primary data collection as part of two longitudinal case studies over the course of the FTZ programme.

The aim of the first case study is to explore how the FTZ programme is being implemented in each area, in order to understand what has gone well and what has proved challenging, and to capture lessons learnt throughout the process.

The second case study will focus on the delivery of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and the associated data infrastructure that underpin it. This case study will involve research with the general public as well as interviews with those who have been working on delivering MaaS in each area. This case study will explore each area’s strategic approach to MaaS, the back-end development alongside public attitudes and users’ experiences once the service is launched.
