Delivering a Sustainable Transport System - DaSTS

The ‘Delivering a Sustainable Transport System’ (DaSTS) report follows on from the ‘Towards Delivery of a Sustainable Transport System’ document which set out a mission statement for Transport for South Hampshire (TfSH) to work within a strategy of Reduce, Manage and Invest.

The DaSTS report was finally submitted in May 2010. It was written to fulfil a requirement from the previous government, and explains how TfSH will achieve five key goals to:

  • support economic competitiveness and growth

  • reduce CO2 and take action on climate change

  • promote safety, security and health

  • promote equal opportunities in order to create a fairer society

  • improve quality of life and promote a healthy, natural environment

TfSH will support these goals in transport terms. For example, a reduction in CO2 can be achieved through the promotion of cycling, walking and public transport which aims to deter people from using private cars.
