- A Valleys Circle Line to transform the Cardiff city region's transport geography - this could be achieved by linking the Rhymney and Merthyr lines via Nelson to allow Pontypridd to play a more pivotal role in the region's economy
- A Cardiff Crossrail using tram-train technology to fully connect the city centre, the bay and to the wider the region, and to unlock development opportunities - especially housing to the north west of the city, the Enterprise Zone between the bay and city centre and places like St Mellons
- A cross valley Bus Rapid Transit system to address poor connectivity between places like Merthyr and Ebbw Vale
- A major upgrade of connectivity between Newport and Ebbw Vale to help the regeneration of both
