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 over the next 10 years.
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.
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 a discussion of how travel demand may change in the future. This report is being reviewed and updated with the results of the Public Conversation.
Both Strategic Environmental Assessment and Equalities Impact Assessment processes are being applied to the development of the new city-wide transport plan.
