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.
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 was held on this Draft Policy Framework. This aimed 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.

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.
