Emissions from transport are the single biggest source of climate emissions in Scotland. With a long term trend of driving and car ownership increasing while bus patronage, cycling and walking fall, emissions are continuing to rise.
The Scottish Greens will deliver a major shift in priorities from day one of the next Parliament, based on building safer communities, prioritising public transport, cycling, walking, wheeling and supporting the rapid replacement of fossil fuel vehicles.
Our plans will create tens of thousands of new jobs building Scotland’s public transport infrastructure for the future. We will build a safer, more equal Scotland that leads the world in tackling the climate emergency.
