The proposals include a series of walking, cycling and public transport improvements for people travelling from south of the Bradford district into the city centre.
The new measures would reduce bus journey times and offer better cycling routes, alongside a longer-term ambition to deliver a Park and Ride service in the future.
These improvements aim to reduce congestion and pollution along Manchester Road.
In summer 2021, Bradford Council consulted on proposals for a full Park and Ride scheme. Since then, the project team has created a new set of proposals which both reflect public feedback and respond to budget pressures caused by rising costs.
The latest proposals include:
Commenting on the proposals, Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, said: “The Manchester Road corridor is a vital route into and out of Bradford city centre, and one which currently suffers from high levels of pollution and congestion. By asking residents what they think about our proposals, we hope to present alternative options for those who wish to use them, and that better infrastructure will lead to easier journeys for all. We’d encourage everyone to view the proposals and let us know what you think.”
Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, said: “We are investing millions of pounds to make it easier for people to walk, cycle and use public transport in and around Bradford.
“This is part of our work to create a more inclusive and better-connected region.
“Your opinion matters, so please make the most of this opportunity to shape these proposals to transform travel between south Bradford and the city centre.”
The consultation is open for six weeks, from Thursday 9 November to Thursday 21 December.

Most of the scheme is being delivered through the Combined Authority’s Transforming Cities Fund programme, which is aimed at making it easier for people to walk, cycle and use public transport.
This includes the development work for the Park and Ride scheme, as well as the delivery of the cycling route and the bus improvements.
Additional funding is being sought for the delivery of the Park and Ride (car park and terminal building).
