The Get Glasgow Moving Campaign are holding a local election hustings event from 7-9pm on Wednesday 26 April at Renfield St Stephen’s Centre, 260 Bath St, Glasgow G2 4JP.

They are also asking people to sign their petition calling on the Council and other key stakeholders to deliver a world-class, fully-integrated & accessible, publicly-owned, public transport network for everyone in our city.

“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.”

So take a minute and sign the petition now!

Over the past year there has been some serious backlash against cycling projects across Scotland. With bike lanes removed in Ayr and Perth, the Bears Way project extension thwarted, and even Edinburgh having a bit of a wobble over its East-West route, it’s clear that it’s not just our national politicians that need but persuaded, but also our local councillors.

SPT has recently been awarded funding from Transport Scotland to look at opportunities to improve walking and cycling to/at public transport interchanges and this is your opportunity to input to the project.

The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete and you could win £25.
