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
• bike-hire stations across the city
• a publicly-owned Transport Authority for Glasgow
• a coordinated, long-term vision and investment in the city’s transport needs

Reasons for signing

  • So many areas are failed by the current transport system. Those on low incomes suffer most as they are the one's who rely most on public transport.
  • We need an intergrated transport system which will allow travel on bus, subway and train on one type of ticket. It should allow transfers and have a cap on the daily spend. Lots of other cities can do it. Why can't Glasgow?
  • I believe that in order to 'Let Glasgow Flourish' to it's full potential, generating the growth needed to keep the city and the neighbouring local authority areas moving forward, attracting inward investment, creating wealth and opportunities for their citizens we need a much better equipped and integrated transport infrastructure, including an expanded underground provision, cross-rail and a heavy rail connection to the airport.
