‘Sustainable transport’ campaign TRANSform Scotland claims to have distilled the essence of the current electioneering into two and a half minutes.

As TRANSform Scotland says – “Any sustainable system of transport which reduces climate change emissions, reduces air pollution, reduces congestion whilst improving quality of life, is achievable only by changing travel behaviour and ceasing subsidies to road use and air travel.”

It puts forward a simple four point guide for politicians –

1. Stop building new motorways
2. No more subsidies to airlines – new briefing “Air travel”
3. Make transport pay its way
4. Prepare for a post-oil Scotland – new briefing “Peak Oil and transport”
