Green councillors and MSPs have a long history of fighting for decent public transport for all, from the Better Buses campaign in Glasgow, to campaigning against axing rural routes in Dumfries and Galloway.

With coal trucks no longer rolling towards Longannet we have the opportunity to reopen the Dunfermline to Alloa line and create a rail link all the way to Glasgow.

Green MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife Mark Ruskell is convening a forum of rail campaigns from across Fife to help the projects move forward, and Green
councillors in Fife House will be a strong advocate of new rail routes and better bus services.

MSP Calls On Councillors to End Political Games

Fri 26 May, 2017

Greens vote to ensure progressive change in Glasgow

Jon Molyneux Fri 19 May, 2017

Green councillors yesterday voted to ensure Glasgow City Council has a proportionate executive committee, which reflects its new political make-up, overturning an SNP proposal that they should have an in-built majority, despite being a minority administration.

The move means that the SNP will require support from at least one other party in order to pass business at this key decision-making body.  This will allow us to support the SNP where they are pushing progressive reform and improve on their proposals where necessary.

New and re-elected Green councillors around Scotland will stick up for communities

Alison Johnstone MSP Tue 9 May, 2017

Despite the importance of council services, such as schools, social care and housing, last week’s local elections were overshadowed by national events. Those of us who care about local democracy faced an uphill battle. With little national media interest, a Tory prime minister trampling over the campaign by calling a general election in the middle of it, and other parties cynically trying to make it about constitutional issues, it was one of the toughest campaigns I can recall.
