scotrailThe Scotrail summer timetable is now in operation. Why not leave the car at home and take in the beautiful Scottish scenery from the train?

Step off the train and onto a bike – the perfect way to explore the city and countryside. You’ll find designated cycle spaces on many trains. For some journeys, you’ll need to reserve a space for your bike. Where you can’t book a spot, spaces are given on a first come first served basis.

Bike & Go is a flexible bike hire scheme available at 12 stations in Scotland. How does it work? You’ll need to register, and pay a £10 annual membership fee. Then it’s just a low daily hire rate of £3.80 a day. Pick up the bike at the station, and drop it back when you’re done.

The Kids Go Free ticket lets you travel on most services off-peak anywhere in Scotland with one or two children aged 5-15, for the same price as an adult ticket. In addition there’s a wide range of railcards and discounts available  including

  • Two Together railcard
  • Disabled Persons railcard
  • 16-25 railcard
  • Senior railcard
  • Highland railcard
  • Young Scot National Entitlement card.

All you need to do now is buy the ticket and go off and enjoy yourself!!

Glasgow City Council want to know about your experiences of public transport in the city.

One of the key priorities for Glasgow City Council is to reduce inequality across Glasgow by creating a thriving economy that works for everyone.

Improving public transport has been identified by Glasgow Community Planning Partnership (GCPP) as a key enabler in allowing everyone to connect to opportunities to work, access training and education, shop and socialise in the city.

This short anonymised survey is designed to capture your thoughts and experiences on moving around the city and will be shared with GCPP and it’s partners including Glasgow City Council to inform their research into improving public transport provision across the city.

Citizens Advice Scotland recently published the findings of a bus users survey in the Your Bus, Your Say report. Over 4,600 people responded witht he highest number of responses being from Glasgow. The three most important issues to people were service frequency, punctuality and value for money.

CAS has explored the experience of bus passengers over the past few years. In 2016, they undertook a bus users’ survey which looked at transport issues in rural areas, and led to the Round the Bend report

Following this, they wanted to explore what bus passengers want which led them to undertake a public survey, asking consumers what aspects of their bus services they are satisfied with and what they are unsatisfied with. CAS also asked what issues were most important to consumers in relation to buses.  This report analyses this ‘Your Bus, Your Say’ survey which was completed in 2017.

Some of the headline results are shown below and the report can be downloaded from the CAS website.
