Working in partnership to transform the school run in Scotland

We collaborate with a number of partner organisations across Scotland who are also working to make active and sustainable travel to school safer, easier and more rewarding.

Our strong partnerships have enabled us to work together to deliver a wide range of resources and initiatives that schools can use to promote active travel and incorporate into the school culture. 

Working with Local Authorities

Each Local Authority has its own school active travel and road safety approach. This incorporates local school travel planning arrangements and may include local initiatives and alternatives to specific activities offered by Sustrans, Living Streets and Cycling Scotland.  

We work to support and collaborate with a broad network of School Travel Professionals in Local Authorities throughout Scotland. We do this through:

  • Providing advice and support on policy, strategy and delivery.
  • Undertaking research and monitoring projects.
  • Sharing good practice through newsletters and seminars.
  • Joint planning and funding of a variety of innovative projects.

If you need guidance or advice from your local authority on active travel to school and road safety, please get in touch with
