Active Travel investment in 2018 - 2019

The Scottish Government doubled the already record level of investment in walking and cycling from £39.2 million in 2017-18 to £80 million per year in 2018-19. 

Much of this budget is allocated to our active travel delivery partners who work across Scotland to deliver projects that will get more people walking and cycling for shorter everyday journeys.

They in turn distribute much of this funding to local authorities, community groups, third sector groups and others.

In the latest Scottish Government budget we saw another £80 million committed for 2019-20.
