The Transport Committee has launched its ‘Our Future Transport’ appeal for experts, researchers and innovative thinkers to share their ideas on what the Committee should investigate for its next in-depth inquiry.
The cross-party Committee regularly scrutinises government policy on transport and the way services are provided across the UK.
This time, the MPs want to consider the impact that new and disruptive technologies and trends might have across all modes of transport.
To help the Committee look towards the future, members want to hear about subjects they may have never come across before, from people in the sector who are in the know about innovations that deserve more attention.

Transport Committee Chair Iain Stewart MP said: “My cross-party colleagues and I want to hear from you on what you think the Transport Committee should examine next. We are keen to pick ideas that will help us scan the horizon for what might be coming down the tracks. If you know of an issue that would benefit from Parliamentary scrutiny – perhaps something we’ve never looked at before – then we would warmly welcome your short proposal for an inquiry. We look forward to hearing your ideas.”
How it will work?
The Committee invites 500 word written proposals via its website to explain your idea for a subject the Committee should investigate. The deadline for proposals will be 12 noon on Monday 6 February.
After receiving your proposals, a shortlist of people who have submitted entries will be invited to present their ideas to the Committee in person during a formal session.
