In 2010-2011, the Department for Transport provided funding to York Unitary Authority (also known as City of York) for cycling through Cycling England, an arm’s length organisation set up in 2005. Funding totalled £1.379m. We do not hold a record of how the funding was split across each year.

In July 2011, City of York was awarded £4.645m revenue and capital funding through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund. The table below shows each year’s allocation for City of York. The funding supported a package of sustainable transport interventions called ‘i-Travel York’ which included cycling projects. We do not hold a record of how funding was split between i-Travel York’s various sustainable transport projects, but we do know that cycling improvements formed a significant element.
