Get Glasgow Moving - world-class transport for Glasgow

Get Glasgow Moving - world-class transport for Glasgow

Deliver a world-class, fully-integrated & accessible, publicly-owned, public transport network for everyone in our city.

Why is this important?

Most people in Glasgow rely on public transport to get around (only 49% of households have cars), yet our public transport network is a total mess.

Investing in public transport is essential for expanding our city’s economy, addressing inequality and social isolation, reducing toxic levels of air pollution and tackling climate change.

Bickering between political parties is letting Glasgow down. We are decades behind other cities in providing affordable and sustainable transport. We are calling for:

• a publicly-owned bus company for Glasgow
• affordable, integrated ticketing with a city-wide smartcard and daily price cap
• bike-hire stations across the city, with free access for Concessionary card holders
• a publicly-owned Transport Authority for Glasgow, with power over the entire network
• a coordinated, long-term vision and investment in the city’s transport needs

Reasons for signing

  • The buses that run on the South Side are unbelievably noisy - probably due to having very old motors and poor maintenance. We finally need electric, or at least hybrid vehicles. With all these extortionate tickets, First should be able to invest generously in new equipment by now.
  • Getting to the airport costs 8 pounds and I also need to get another bus to get to it. Some flights are cheaper than getting to and from the airport - and not even in a convenient way. And it's not like it costs more to run that route. They're charging it because they can.
  • I had to buy s friggin car
