Scottish Parliament Cross-Party Group on Sustainable Transport

Transform Scotland provides the secretariat for the Scottish Parliament Cross-Party Group on Sustainable Transport. 

The purpose of this group is ‘to raise the profile of sustainable transport’, with a particular focus on cross-modal issues, within the Scottish Parliament, and to promote policies and priorities relating to sustainable transport.

Graham Simpson MSP (Conservatives) is the Convenor of the Group, and the three Deputy Convenors are: John Mason MSP (SNP), Sarah Boyack MSP (Labour) and Mark Ruskell MSP (Greens).
