In January 2015 the Government launched the Total Transport pilot fund. Local authorities in England were able to bid for resources to implement a cross-sector integrated approach to the delivery of transport services, including health services, higher education organisations and operators.
CIHT and Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) have played a supporting role on the Governance Board of the Network Northamptonshire Total Transport Pilot. CIHT ran an event which highlighted some of the successful work carried out by the Total Transport Pilots - the event explored how these might be taken forward in light of the Bus Services Bill.
Aim of the event:
Who is was for: Local Authorities, Clinical Commission Groups, clients and providers.

Total Transport Pilot - 23 March 2017
John Sykes - Project Manager, Network Northamptonshire
John Sykes is a transport consultant who took on the role of project manager for ‘Network Northamptonshire’ Total Transport in June 2015, having taken early retirement from Hertfordshire County Council in 2013. During his 40 years service with the council he held a number of senior transport related management posts as well as coordinating various projects within the Hertfordshire police service, CCG/NHS, Adult and Social Care services, and the council’s road safety and education departments.
These combined experiences, both at local and national level, have helped him develop a comprehensive understanding of passenger transport and sustainable transport issues at a senior management level. He has regularly risen to the challenges associated with having to manage large and multi disciplined teams, which has required leadership of a number of complex projects. One of those being an initiative in 2014 working alongside the University of Hertfordshire to deliver a mobile phone based bus ticket for their in-house fleet.
In his current role John is project managing the coordination and delivery of a ‘social enterprise’ model to commission and deliver ‘total transport’ services across the whole of Northamptonshire. This partnership is inclusive of the county council, various NHS bodies, the universities of Northampton and Hertfordshire, and public transport providers.
