Active Travel transformation

Commitment has been made for a generational shift in funding for active travel over this Parliament. The Scottish Government announced record funding for active travel in its draft budget proposal for 2023-24, with almost £190m allocated for active travel, and through the Bute House Agreement between the Scottish Government  and the Scottish Green Party in 2021, it was agreed that at least £320m or 10% of the total transport budget will be allocated to active travel by 2024-25.

This record level of funding underscores the need to ensure that our delivery practices maximise outcomes and provide infrastructure at the pace and scale we need for transformational change.

An Active Travel Transformation Project was set up to assess the current delivery model and develop proposals for an alternative holistic system for active travel delivery, and make recommendations on the delivery model required to implement this system.
