Recently, the Scottish Parliament debated the “Fair Fares Review” (you can read this at https://www.transport.gov.scot/our-approach/strategy/fair-fares-review).

I am keen to see progress on a bus flat fares pilot which the Scottish Government has committed to. Here in Glasgow almost half of all households have no access to a car, which is why our city – and here in Maryhill and Springburn in particular – is an ideal place to start this trial.

Today in the Scottish Parliament I asked Cabinet Secretary for Transport how the Scottish Government will decide which areas will be selected for this trial.

This comes a few weeks after statistics from Transport Scotland shows that public transport journeys are showing a recovery after the pandemic. Delivering the bus flat fares pilot will help continue that growth, and it must also work with the urban rail network in and around our city.

You can see my question, and the reply, below.
