Glasgow recently implemented the Glasgow City Centre Transport Strategy. Five objectives have been defined. The five objectives are 1. Improve the health of Glasgow’s citizens by increasing the modal share of trips to/from and within the city centre by active travel modes (walking, cycling and public transport); 2. Support the growth in economic vibrancy of the city centre, by ensuring access for residents, blue badge holders, tourists and traffic essential to sustain economic functions; 3. Enhance the quality of main pedestrian spaces, key development areas and main access routes; 4. Reduce harmful traffic emissions and noise; and 5. Enhance road safety and personal security for all city centre users.
