We work with a range of partners to provide expertise and support on active travel projects.
Bike Life Scotland
As part of our UK-wide Bike Life project, we're working with seven Scottish cities to produce bi-annual reports.
These reports show progress toward making cycling an attractive and everyday means of travel.
Together we produce evidence-based, engaging and accessible Bike Life reports, to help inform and influence active travel planning in Scotland’s cities.
Bike Life gives city leaders the confidence, opportunity and evidence to talk about the benefits of cycling.
Public transport providers
We work with Public transport Providers on projects which make it easier to combine walking, wheeling and cycling with the bus, ferry and train journeys.
In partnership with Transport for Edinburgh, we’re working on producing a user-friendly digital wayfinding tool to improve urban mobility.
Regional transport partnerships
We work closely with Regional Transport Partnerships (RTPs) to help ensure walking, wheeling and cycling is kept at the forefront of projects being delivered in local areas.
