New Urban Transport Group Chair
‘ready to tackle challenges’

Stephen Edwards, the Executive Director of South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), is the new Chair of the Urban Transport Group.

Stephen Edwards takes over from Tobyn Hughes as Chair

His appointment follows the end of the two-year term of outgoing Chair Tobyn Hughes, Managing Director at Nexus.

The Urban Transport Group is the UK’s network of the seven largest city region transport authorities. Its Board is made up of seven Directors – one from each of its full members.

Stephen says: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to Chair the Urban Transport Group and to work with colleagues from across the city regions to transform urban transport for the better.

“I’ve inherited an organisation which is in great shape thanks to the work of my predecessor, Tobyn Hughes. We’re ready to tackle the many challenges and opportunities for us in the year ahead.”

Stephen joined SYPTE in November 2015 following a career at government services partner Liberata UK. He has a wealth of experience in both the public and private sector, having worked in a range of service areas including business improvement, customer experience and service operations.
