Your opportunity to find out what our political parties’ visions are for our streets, towns and cities – hosted by Walk, Wheel, Cycle, Vote

About this Event

Walk, Wheel, Cycle, Vote is a collaborative campaign asking all candidates for the Scottish Parliament to sign up to three clear pledges that will make Scotland a country where everyone has the choice to walk, wheel or cycle in safety for their everyday journeys.

The organiser has invited the five main political parties in Scotland to join them for an evening to find out what their vision is for our streets, town and cities. Join them and the Walk, Wheel, Cycle, Vote panel to find out if that vision includes our actions to put accessibility at the heart of our communities. These actions are:

Accessibility: Ensure that our streets, paths and footways are accessible to everyone, whether on foot or using any form of mobility aid; by putting accessibility at the heart of our street design, we will create places everyone can use and enjoy.

Infrastructure: Create a long-term programme to rebuild our villages, towns and cities around walking, wheeling and cycling, with active travel infrastructure everyone can use – the initial goal should be that every child who wants to can walk, wheel or cycle to their school.

Investment: Provide the sustained, long-term investment needed to start this transformation of Scotland into a country that enables active travel everywhere – starting from 10% of the transport budget, and rising to 20% over the course of the parliament.
