The unique specialist information source for local transport!

A 30-year journey

Local Transport Today has been providing a unique service of news, analysis and comment about everything relating to transport at urban, conurbation, rural and regional levels in Britain for over 30 years.

Founded as a magazine in 1989, it quickly became required reading for planners and transport managers in local authorities, transport service providers, consultants and specialist suppliers and all those researching and studying the challenges of providing mobility and accessibility for people and businesses all around the UK.

Over the years, conferences and seminars, online information resources and other networking and knowledge exchange activities - including an annual Local Transport Summit - have been added to the mix.

During the Covid-19 lockdown this year, LTT introduced a regular fortnightly series of online conversations which became must-attend discussions for those tackling the impacts of the pandemic on local transport.

The most recent innovative step has been the launch of a new app, which provides an equivalent to the printed magazine to be viewed on smart devices with the latest user-friendly capability to display all the individual stories and features in large easy-to-read formats by a single tap on a screen. There are also direct links to all featured websites and email addresses mentioned in the magazine.

LTT is part of the Landor LINKS media and information services business, and its content is an important feed to the TransportXtra website, which has a uniquely rich resource about all elements of transport in the UK.

And now our new app…

Our state of the art digital delivery system brings LTT magazine to smartphones and provides subscribers with the latest capabilities and functionality for those wanting to read on their mobiles.

The new LTT Edition app is using the advanced technology of PageSuite, a digital publishing services company helping the producers of magazines and newspapers to create market-leading desktop, tablet and mobile solutions. LTT will join other uses of the system including international magazine and newspaper publishers like the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe and a range of consumer and business magazines.

Along with the new platform we’ve been developing for in-depth discussion of transport issues, we believe the addition of the app to the LTT portfolio strengthens the ways in which we can help members of the LTT community receive and consume information and join discussion, and themselves contribute to building professional knowledge and capability.

We have designed these new elements to form an integral part of the overall LTT offer, so it’s not a question of whether you read LTT magazine in print, have the app, join the discussion on the new platform or enjoy the rich archival resources of TransportXtra, the overall package will allow you to get the best out of our incredible resource of information and highly regarded editorial and publishing skills.

All LTT subscribers will automatically be able to sign up for the app facility through unique passwords issued as part of their LTT memberships. This comes in addition to receiving the print magazine, as well as access to the content that already goes into each issue from LTT to TransportXtra and the other online information feeds we produce.
