EU Exit (Brexit)


Transport Scotland is working with the UK Government, other agencies, transport providers, ports and airports to plan for all scenarios in relation to EU Exit (Brexit).

Upon leaving the European Union on 31 January, the UK will enter into an Implementation Period, which will last until at least 31 December 2020. During the Implementation Period there are not expected to be any changes to how transport services currently operate.

Whether the rules around transport services will change after the Implementation Period end remains unclear, and will largely depend on the result of negotiations between the EU and UK. Accordingly, we are continuing to engage with UK Government to ensure that Scottish interests are protected.

As details will be changing over time in relation to Brexit, we'll update this section when new information becomes available.
