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

  • Since Abelio took over the Scotrail franchise the Glasgow Suburban service has deteriorated severely. Under First, I could set my watch by the arrival of my train. Now the services are almost always a few minutes late or, much worse, turning short and missing out large sections of the line and many stations. A dreadful practice which must be stopped. Also the busses running on my local Firstbus routes are decrepit and generally dirty. Time for an upgrade.
  • Public transport is an utter disgrace in Glasgow. Poor services in exchange for high prices. Glasgow - this is NOT good enough.
  • i have a bus person and disabled past 25 yrs and in maryhill and ruchill area we always had bad quality buses and stripped of service
