The Scottish Government has set a target to reduce car kilometres travelled in Scotland by 20% by 2030 and recently consulted on a route map of interventions to achieve this target. The route map identifies actions to support four outcomes:

  • Reduce the need to travel.
  • Live well locally.
  • Switching modes to walk, wheel, cycle or public transport.
  • Combine or share car trips.

PHS held a health impact scoping workshop for each of these outcomes. These reports summarise the key impacts, recommendations and feedback from the workshops.
