To get around Glasgow, I travel using the subway, trains and buses on most week days. The reliability of our public transport is very important for my day to day work activities. I am very supportive of the campaign to invest in public transport. It is essential that there is funding provided for public transport to help promote better health and connect communities across Glasgow.
A priority is provision of an integrated transport strategy with a fleet of Glasgow-owned electric buses, as well as new and well maintained cycle and walking routes throughout the city.
presents fantastic opportunities for us to develop Glasgow's
rail network that residents deserve. Proposals could
include investment in new rail stations at West Street, Citizens
Theatre in the Gorbals and Glasgow Cross. This is a great opportunity to reduce poverty linked to transportation
costs. Less reliance on car travel will improve health for residents
as it will reduce
stress levels and promote a higher quality of life. We
urgently need renewed focus on securing investment in Crossrail from
Transport Scotland and Glasgow Region City Deal.
