In advance of the Spending Review, we have joined forces with thirteen other organisations and written to the Finance Secretary, Derek Mackay, to urge the Scottish Government commit a minimum of 10% of the overall transport budget to supporting walking and cycling by 2020, with a significant step in that direction in the next budget.  

 

Our call comes on the day that new Transport Scotland statistics show that cycling rates are stalled at around 1% of all trips.
