Transport (Scotland) Act
The Transport (Scotland) Act was designed to help make Scotland’s transport network cleaner, smarter and more accessible than ever before - aiming to empower local authorities and establish consistent standards in order to tackle current and future challenges, while delivering a more responsive and sustainable transport system for everyone in Scotland.
The Act took forward a number of Scottish Government commitments from its 2017-18 Programme for Government.
The Act received Royal Assent on 15 November 2019. View the Transport (Scotland) Act 2019.
