Space for Cycling Glasgow are organising a family friendly ride on Sunday 22 October for a Better Byres Road that has a pleasant walking environment, safe cycling provision, and low volumes of motor traffic.

The latest design proposals for Byres Road lack a firm commitment in putting people first. They want a Byres Road in which a young child can cycle safely, a place where you can hear yourself chatting to a friend whilst crossing the street with ease and a safe street in which parents don’t have to worry about their children.

The Hands Up Scotland Survey looks at how pupils across Scotland travel to school and is the largest national dataset on school travel.  The 2017 survey will take place from Monday 11 until Friday 15 September with schools selecting one day to carry out the survey.

Each September, schools across Scotland complete the survey in class by asking their pupils ‘How do you normally travel to school?’. Local authority officers distribute the survey to schools and return pupil responses to Sustrans for collation, analysis and reporting.

The results provide a valuable annual snapshot of school travel and are used by Sustrans, Transport Scotland and other groups to inform policy areas, monitor trends in school travel over time, and provide information relevant to a variety of health, transport and education initiatives.

For more information about the Hands Up Scotland survey please visit the Sustrans website where you can also download all the information for the 2017 survey. You can see the headline results from 2016 below.
