Shared transport solutions for the post-coronavirus commute put to MSPs

CoMoUK has submitted a number of recommendations in response to the Scottish Parliament’s Green Recovery inquiry. New proposals include giving ‘mobility credits’ to people who trade in older, high-polluting cars to be used on public transport or shared initiatives. We have also expressed our desire to see more ambitious targets set by local authorities to reduce ‘grey fleet’ mileage; increased government funding for bike-sharing schemes; and more cash for community groups which want to invest in electric vehicles. Local authorities should also be urged to create ‘low car neighbourhoods’, while developers of new housing estates should be compelled to include shared mobility facilities. And in order to improve health and encourage behaviour change, our response proposes that GPs should consider ‘prescription cycling’ for bike-sharing schemes. Such a move would increase the use and demand of bike-sharing initiatives found in several Scottish cities, and improve the physical and mental health of the nation in the process. Lorna Finlayson, Scotland director of CoMoUK, said: “Shared transport schemes will improve the health of the nation, boost the environment, and help the Scottish Government hit its own net zero targets. But our sector now faces serious challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. “More people are using private cars to get to work, and public transport has suffered a huge drop in use, and therefore income. And while that is all clearly of great concern, this inquiry presents an opportunity to change the way people move around. “These recommendations could make a positive impact on the environment and the quality of life for commuters across the country. We need to see imaginative schemes to encourage behaviour change, and GPs can play their part too by highlighting bike-sharing schemes to improve mental and physical wellbeing.” Read our full submission below.

SHARE-North

ShareNorth Project accelerating growth of Shared Mobility

CoMoUK is a part of the Share-North project working with EU partners from 2019-2021 to raise the profile of shared mobility solutions. The aim of the project is to utilise expertise from both sides of the North Sea to develop, promote and assess the impacts of car clubs, bike share, 2+ ride-sharing and other shared transport options. In 2020 CoMoUK will focus on two key areas: The first is engaging key stakeholders to take a Shared MObility pledge - a commitment to one or more specific actions to help to overcome barriers to the development of shared transport options. Secondly, we will also be working with partners to create mobility hubs in targeted areas to reclaim as kerbs space for sustainable travel modes and improved public realm living. If you are interested in learning more about SHARE-North you can do so here and you can find out the areas the project covers here .
