Testimonials

Transform Scotland is an important national alliance that brings those partners together and we are delighted to be a member. It provides an independent voice, supported by evidence-based research, which is important in making the case for more investment in sustainable transport modes, such as buses, coaches and trains as well as walking and cycling.

“Glasgow City Council is very pleased to be a member of Transform Scotland. It gives us an opportunity to work alongside all the other organisations in Scotland who are leading the way to stop climate emissions from transport. We’ve got a lot of work ahead to make Glasgow carbon neutral by 2030, and Transform Scotland is there with us ready to meet the challenge.”

Cllr Anna Richardson, City Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction, Glasgow City Council


“Transform Scotland is truly independent, authoritative and unique. There are many examples of their campaigns making both media and political headlines and they are widely regarded as being influential. We have previously commissioned research from Transform – their work was excellent and their reports were high quality and well received.”

John Lauder, Director, Sustrans Scotland


“Levenmouth Rail Campaign found it very useful to work with Transform Scotland at a critical stage of the Campaign. In particular, the shaping of a political initiative brought vital experience and skills to bear in building profile and exercising influence at national level. This contribution, backed by good communications, was an important and professional complement to the energies and mass local support of the Campaign and undoubtedly helped moved things forward.”

Allen Armstrong, Secretary, Levenmouth Rail Campaign

“Transform Scotland is inspirational in its way of thinking. They’ve supported Edinburgh Trams to generate support for trams as a sustainable mode of travel and create a positive buzz for the future. Transform is a vital support to our team and their messaging on sustainable transport and environment causes is influential to all walks of life, from older to younger generations.”

Lea Harrison, General Manager, Edinburgh Trams


“The climate emergency is focussing even more attention on practical ways of cutting emissions from transport, but freight is often forgotten. Transform Scotland plays an important part in helping to spread the message that modal shift from road haulage to rail freight can make a key contribution to delivering a safe, sustainable and low-carbon transport system.”

David Spaven, former Scottish Representative, Rail Freight Group


“Transform Scotland provides an important insight into all aspects of sustainable transport policy and practice. Its events are both informative and stimulating and the opportunity to engage with representatives from a wide cross section of the Scottish transport industry is invaluable.”

David Cannon, former Public Affairs Manager, David MacBrayne Group


“Work by Transform paved the way for the establishment of the Developing Car Clubs in Scotland programme. CoMoUK has been able to build on this work to secure funding from Transport Scotland to support the continued development of urban and rural car clubs across Scotland.”
