Sustrans policy advisor Matt Hemsley has spoken to ITV News about the effect 'transport poverty' could have on the Welsh economy.
It comes as Department for Transport figures reveal Wales is the worst-hit part of the UK for fare increases - while also seeing the biggest fall in passenger journeys.

"This is a big problem for the economy and lots of people."
