What could your future journey look like?
We’ve set a target for Edinburgh to be carbon neutral by 2030. To do this, we need Edinburgh’s transport to be better connected, cleaner, accessible and more sustainable. This means we need radical changes to the way people - and the things we buy - move around. By investing in new technologies and different ways to travel, we can reduce stress and long commutes, avoid parking expenses and hassle, as well as take care of our environment.
Here's how your future journeys could look like if we change how we move around through the proposals in the City Mobility Plan. They give you a taste of what we want for your future and for everyone in our city.
Alex's future journey
Alex from North Edinburgh, who attends regular medical appointments, can have personal assistance on the driverless hopper bus and take the new tram route to the front door of the Royal Infirmary. He’s no longer worried about missing appointments because of traffic. (Read the transcript of Alex's future journey.)
Joe's future journey
Joe, who lives in Dunfermline, could take his bike to work instead of driving. He could cycle with his kids to their school, hop on the bike bus, then cycle the rest. He’ll be at work faster and doesn’t have to worry about parking. Better for him and the planet. (Read the transcript of Joe's future journey.)
Sam's future journey
Sam could use the transport app to quickly book the community-organised electric bus that runs from Ratho all the way round the city. She can catch up with her neighbours along the way. A quicker and cheaper journey for her. Better for the planet. (Read the transcript of Sam's future journey.)
Lou's future journey
Lou can sell the car and join the local car club in Leith, just using wheels when going on adventures. To get to work in town, the tram’s quickest and has less emissions. (Read the transcript of Lou's future journey.)
