Hereford city is quite compact and flat, therefore ideal for cycling short journeys around the city. There are currently very few dedicated cycle lanes of any worth in the city particularly on main routes in and out of the centre. If cycling was made safe and easily accessible for all I believe thus could greatly reduce car use in the city for short journeys.
Secondly we have a perfect route already set up for a public transport system such as a tram which can run along the old GWR track. This is already set up to run from Belmont/Newton Farm over the River to Sainsburys and on to WideMarsh Common with relatively little effort. The locations would not only be ideal for people travelling in, out and through the centre but could also connect to park and ride scheme. This would be a clean, quiet and efficient system and an opportunity to drag Hereford into the 21st century.
