The Times reported on a poll by YouGov which surveyed people in Glasgow and Edinburgh about their attitudes towards driving which found that 70 per cent of people believed that it should be possible to undertake their most frequent journeys without a car.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
