Low Carbon Travel Hubs

Case Studies > Low Carbon Travel Hubs

In 2016, Regional Transport Partnership, HITRANS, appointed Ansons to determine whether there was scope to develop one or more low carbon travel hubs in Argyll and Bute using funding sourced through the Scottish Government’s Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge (LCTT) fund.

More specifically, Ansons was asked to plan, run and report the results of stakeholder workshops in the five main waterfront towns of Campbeltown, Dunoon, Helensburgh, Oban and Rothesay. The purpose of the workshops was to explore the potential to develop an effective and sustainable active and/or low carbon travel hub in each location. When key organisations indicated they could not attend the workshop/s they were invited to, Ansons interviewed a representative instead.

This process generated a wide range of ideas about how to support, promote and facilitate active and sustainable travel at both a local and regional level.
