Cycling Action Plan Launched

Transport Scotland launched a refresh of the Cycling Action Plan for Scotland (CAPS) on 17 January. CAPS 2017 maintains the current ambition of aiming for 10% of everyday journeys to be made by bike by 2020.

CAPS 2017 – the third iteration of the Cycling Action Plan for Scotland – outlines the Scottish Government’s commitment to maintaining the funding levels for active travel for the remainder of this Parliament, as stated in the Programme for Government.

 

The refresh features the introduction of the Active Travel Task Force which will tackle the practical barriers to the delivery of ambitious walking and cycling infrastructure projects in Scotland.

 

It highlights integration with public transport, through partnership working with Scotrail, bus/coach operators and Regional Transport Partnerships (RTPs).

 

Other actions include developing active travel hubs across Scotland by utilising European Regional Development Funding and continued support to educational campaigns aimed at all road users.
