A multimillion package of Birmingham and Solihull transport schemes to boost economic growth and cut carbon has been given the green light.
The money, from the Government's Local Sustainable Transport Fund, will pay for a range of cycling, walking and public transport initiatives designed to connect people to work, education, training and leisure.
The £2.95 million funding, which has been awarded to the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) area, will be used by Centro and Birmingham and Solihull councils to provide free travel passes and cycling support for jobseekers, cycle storage facilities at railway stations and travel support for students, parents and staff at schools.
There will also be free adult cycle training and bus and HGV driver training.
The initiatives will be delivered during 2015-16 and build on Centro's £50 million, three-year Smart Network, Smarter Choices project which runs until March 2015.
