SEStran is a Regional Transport Partnership (RTP) comprised of eight local councils in SE Scotland; Borders, East Lothian, West Lothian and Midlothian, Edinburgh, Fife, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire. Our aim is to develop a comprehensive, sustainable transportation system for the region that will enable business to function effectively, and provide everyone living in the region with improved access to health care, education, public services and employment opportunities.
We aim to make public transport the mode of choice for most journeys and encourage travelers to make “smart” transportation choices, including cycling and walking for shorter journeys, and sensible use of the car – including car sharing.
SEStran’s Regional Transport Strategy will form the core of our work for the next 15 years. It aims to
- Encourage sustainable economic growth
- Improve accessibility – particularly for those with limited transport choices
- Ensure that development is environmentally sustainable
- Promote a healthier population
