Since then we have grown to include a team of six associates - Carey Newson, Professor Jillian Anable, Beth Hiblin, Professor Phil Goodwin, Anna Goodman and Lisa Hopkinson - whose combined energies and skills have helped Transport for Quality of Life establish a reputation at the forefront of sustainable transport research, policy and best practice.
In 2009 the partnership became Transport for Quality of Life Limited.
