The Greens want to see an integrated, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable transport system for Scotland, with a strong presumption against road building except for bypasses where communities are divided by a major arterial road.
We want to see subsidised bus passes and season tickets and free school travel for under -11s and railway services back into public hands.
How is your local railway service? Do you think our railways would be better in public ownership?

South Lanarkshire City Deal Roads Projec which includes the Cathkin By-pass, dualling Stewartfield Way and upgrading Greenhills Road will increase traffic says the South Lanarkshire Green Party.
Joining those opposed to the Cathkin By-pass at their public event yesterday, South Lanarkshire Greens called for the council to look at wiser ways to invest the City Deal capital money, rather than trawling up 'out of date' road building projects which will only generate more traffic.
Yet again air quality at the Whirlies roundabout in East Kilbride has failed to meet standards
Transport priorities in Lanarkshire need to be reviewed as controversy continues on changes to rail services from Lanark station and while road travellers into Glasgow face disruption due to roadworks at the Raith interchange on the M74.
