Brian Matthews

Head of Transport Innovation - Milton Keynes Council


Brian has been with Milton Keynes Council since 1997, previously working for Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire County Councils.

Brian has this year taken up a role leading on the development and delivery of the council’s programme of Transport Innovation. This builds on Brian’s experience of managing the delivery of MK’s Electric Bus Project (UKs first fully electric bus service) and leading on the council’s Go Ultra Low cities programme – designed to increase the number of ULEVs in Milton Keynes.

Brian also worked alongside the Automotive Council and the Transport Systems Catapult to help develop the Low carbon Urban Transport Zone (LUTZ) initiative, which provides the foundations for the Autonomous Pods project, (LUTZ Pathfinder) in MK and the driverless cars programme (UK Autodrive), the largest and perhaps most complex demonstration trial within the UK..
