Wheels are in motion for new drive towards Scotland’s net zero future

Bus operators in Glasgow and the surrounding areas have come together for the first time in a collaborative partnership called the GlasGo Bus Alliance (GlasGo), with the shared aim to work together and, with other stakeholders, transform bus travel for the people of Glasgow.

GlasGo has set an ambitious five-year action plan, with a vision that will bring about a service offering seamless and timely connections for commuters, visitors and shoppers travelling across Glasgow, along with up to the minute timetables and bus information apps.

It is also planning to introduce caps on the cost of daily travel irrespective of which or how many different operator buses a commuter uses.

To deliver some of the plans such as addressing road congestion, infrastructure, bus priority and traffic calming measures, GlasGo is already working in partnership with the region’s local authorities and SPT through the Glasgow Bus Partnership Steering Group.
