    What is the West Yorkshire Combined Authority?

    The West Yorkshire Combined Authority was formed in April 2014 to be the driving force for economic growth across the Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield districts and the City of York Council area. The West Yorkshire Combined Authority brings together key decision-making powers into a single body. To find out more visit: www.westyorks-ca.gov.uk (opens in a new page).

    Why is the Combined Authority carrying out the P&R satisfaction surveys?

    The aim of these surveys is to find out what passengers think of the P&R services, how they use them and if any further improvements can be made.

    Who can provide feedback?

    We welcome opinions and feedback from anyone. Whether you travel by public transport, walk, drive, cycle, are a business owner, local resident or just travel through the area. Your views and insight are valuable to us and will help shape the P&R services.

    Please share this page with anyone you think would be interested in taking part in the public engagement. If you intend to submit a joint response on behalf of a group or organisation, please share the link with your colleagues or members so they can provide an individual response, should they wish to do so.
