REPUTE has rolled out two pilot tests of market stimulation in Scotland, in partnership with HITRANS , the regional transport agency for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
The first of these is a test of two transport information signs, powered by renewable energy, to be located on poles at existing bus stops; one in Aviemore, Burnside Bus Stop, and one in Carrbridge, Bus Turning Circle. The signs will be installed by Nexus Alpha.
The second pilot is a personal travel planning project being run by JMP in association with HITRANS. The project will see PTP take place in key locations within Fort William and the surrounding communities of Caol, Corpach and Banavie, including schools and workplaces. An important element will be selected PTP taking place on a ‘door to door’ basis within key sections community which are likely to achieve the best change in modal share for active travel.
One key element of this project will be to develop a toolkit for the PTP exercise, so that it can be delivered in other project areas within the REPUTE project, and also within other locations in the HITRANS region.
