Vote Bike

I responded to the website as you asked. I ticked all the boxes except to spend £10 a person, where I clicked "it depends" as this is a huge financial commitment to make before the budget is set. 

I commented:  

“We face an increasingly car-dependent population, as the relative cost of public transport has risen and its availability in some areas has fallen. This contributes to a public health crisis due to physical inactivity, health damaging air pollution and a rising toll of death and serious injury on the roads.

“We must create a transport system that is socially just and addresses health inequality by prioritising access to services by walking, cycling and public transport. This means reallocating road-space, reducing road danger and cleaning up our air to make our towns, cities and villages into more livable, socially inclusive places.”
