Through advocacy, research and development, CoMoUK supports shared modes such as car clubs, bike share, e-scooter sharing, and emerging modes such as ‘on demand’ buses along with well-designed infrastructure such as mobility hubs.
While advances in technology can make transport more efficient and less environmentally damaging, it will not be enough to bring about the kind of change needed to enable Scotland to meet its climate change targets in particular.
Shared transport complements the benefits that public transport and active transport can bring as it enables people to have personal transport use without the need to own it.
Scotland needs not only cleaner cars, but fewer cars, and shared services have a lower impact on the environment and transport infrastructure.
Reach out to every local council in Scotland to support shared transport being a major element of their local transport plans.
Assist any local, urban, rural communities and community organisations in Scotland who would want to introduce shared transport schemes or infrastructure.
Support planners to include shared transport measures at all levels as part of the package of policy interventions needed to meet Transport Scotland’s aim of reducing car kilometres by 20% by 2030.
Work with individual members of the public to support people to make more informed choices and make the most of opportunities for shared transport in their lives.
