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 transport network
• a coordinated, long-term vision and investment to meet the city’s transport needs

Reasons for signing

  • Because the world will shortly be ending those in power don't see the point in investing in a joined up state of the art transport system. A link to the airport would also be good. Just back from Rome where their transport system although not perfect works well and is used by many. Modernise the rolling stock and buses to provide a more efficent and effective transport system.
  • I live right by a low level station but the service at peak times is third world. Its so galling to see the beautiful stations and infrastructure being put in place in London with Crossrail etc, yet we put up with knackered, smelly, inoperable stations in the centre of Scotland's biggest city.
  • We require a proper transport system that meets the needs of the Glasgow people and our visitors. Stop private companies profiteering and bring our public transport back into public ownership.
