Glasgow Transport Strategy

Get in touch

What is it?

The Council is working on a new Glasgow Transport Strategy for the City in 2020/21. This will update and replace the existing Local Transport Strategy for the City (2007-09). The new transport strategy will be city-wide, and provide a framework for investment and decision-making on transport issues up to 2030.

Current activity - A Draft Policy Framework for Consultation and Discussion

Part 1 of the Glasgow Transport Strategy is a Policy Framework. This sets out transport policies and related actions. It will be supported by Part 2, a Spatial Delivery Framework, in 2022.

From 18th October to 3rd December 2021, a public and stakeholder consultation is being held on this Draft Policy Framework. This is aiming to encourage discussion and feedback, to help make the Policy Framework stronger and to help ensure we all work together to achieve goals for the city.

A Public Conversation on Glasgow's Transport Future

A Public Conversation on Glasgow's Transport Future was held for 6 weeks in September-October 2020. The results from this major public engagement can be found on our Connecting Communities webpage. This work is informing the ongoing development of the new Glasgow Transport Strategy.

Case for Change Stage

To support our Public Conversation on Glasgow's Transport Future in September and October 2020, a Draft Case for Change report was prepared. This is a technical report of evidence of problems to tackle in our new Glasgow Transport Strategy, opportunities to build on, draft outcomes and initial policy focus areas, and an initial discussion of how travel demand may change in the future.

The Case for Change report was then updated following the Public Conversation and finalised. You can read a pdf icon Summary Case for Change Report [1Mb] or the pdf icon Full Case for Change Report here [13Mb].

A June 2021 update on the Case for Change stage of the Glasgow Transport Strategy is available pdf icon here [1Mb].

Impact assessment

The Strategic Environmental Assessment process aims to ensure the transport strategy process considers impacts on a number of environment-related objectives. The outputs to date from this process are shown below:

The Equalities Impact Assessment process aims to ensure the transport strategy process considers impacts on a number of equalities objectives. The outputs to date from this process are shown below:
