Rural Transport - Strathclyde Transport Hubs

Rural Transport - Strathclyde Transport Hubs

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) were allocated a European Regional Development Fund grant to consider the feasibility of Low Carbon Travel and Transport Hubs. The Strathclyde region covers urban centres and large rural areas. SYSTRA were commissioned to undertake feasibility studies to understand the potential for delivering low carbon hubs for both active travel and electric buses.

The active travel hubs had the aim of integrating key routes on both active travel and public transport networks, providing key services which facilitate and promote the uptake of each mode including:

  • Completion of a best practice review related to active travel hubs in the UK and beyond;
  • Public consultation via an online survey, and discussion with key stakeholders;
  • Analysis of available data, such as cycle parking usage, travel to work data, and demand analysis;
  • Accessibility and GIS catchment analysis;
  • Shortlisting of potential hub locations and the potential for new hub facilities;
  • Scoping of options such as bike rental, storage, routing, signage, and maintenance points;
  • The costing of potential hubs and recommendations on taking these forward;
  • review of electric charging technology and community vehicle hire schemes; and
  • Identification of potential electric bus routes and charge to serve the rural communities
