Hello, we are pteg – the Passenger Transport Executive Group. We represent the six English Passenger Transport Executives (PTEs) – the driving force behind the development of public transport in the city regions. The six PTEs are: Centro in the West Midlands, Transport for Greater Manchester, Merseytravel, Metro in West Yorkshire, Nexus in Tyne and Wear and SYPTE in South Yorkshire. Nottingham and Leicester City Councils, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and Transport for London are associate members.
pteg has two main tasks:
- promoting efficiencies and the exchange of knowledge and good practice within the PTE network, and
- raising awareness nationally about the key transport challenges which face the city regions, and the public transport solutions which PTEs are implementing.
pteg strategy and policy is determined by the Directors General of the six PTEs, who meet at least quarterly. pteg also run a number of task groups and committees bringing together professionals from across the PTE network to focus on specific policy areas, to share expertise and good practice and to work collaboratively and more efficiently. The pteg Support Unit, based in Leeds, coordinates pteg’s activities and acts as a central point of contact.
