TRANSFORMING CITIES FUND

The Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) aims to improve productivity and spread prosperity through investment in public and sustainable transport in some of the largest English city regions, including the South Yorkshire region.

Encouraging an increase in journeys made by low carbon, sustainable modes is a key objective of the Fund.

Additionally, the Fund aims to support wider cross-cutting priorities such as:

  • improving access to work and delivering growth
  • tackling air pollution and reducing carbon emissions
  • delivering apprenticeships and improving skills

The Department for Transport (DfT) allocated funding via two tranches. South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority were one of ten authorities that could bid for the first tranche of £60 million and one of twelve authorities that could bid for the second tranche of £1.28bn.

Six schemes were put forward to DfT for consideration under TCF Tranche One in January 2019. View the Tranche One information below.

A Strategic Business case for a programme of up to £220m was put forward to DfT for consideration under TCF Tranche Two in November  2019. View the Tranche Two information below.

In March 2020, the DfT confirmed that we had been successful in securing £166m through TCF. For schemes in receipt of development funding within the programme please visit our Committees and Meetings database website.
