Transport Transition Plan full of good intentions, but nothing concrete on fairness

Published 26 May 2020 by Transform Scotland

Responding to this afternoon’s publication of the Transport Transition Plan, Transform director Colin Howden said:

“The Plan is full of good intentions on both fairness and a ‘green recovery’ but, as yet, says nothing concrete on either.

“Transport inequalities may have been unavoidable during the initial phase of lockdown, but it’s critical that decisive action follows to ensure that this situation does not become entrenched.”

Transform is, however, very happy to welcome the trebling of the ‘Spaces for People’ fund, and looks forward to seeing ‘Space for Distancing’ applications from all 32 Local Authorities.
