It’s Thursday! And today’s blog comes to you from Ruth White, Placemaking and Mobility Strategy and Development Manager at the City of Edinburgh Council. She talks about how, after housing, transport costs are the single biggest household expenditure in the UK and for people living in poverty, owning a car is an unaffordable luxury.

You can find out more about Edinburgh’s City Mobility Plan (CMP) and the importance for having a good public transport system to support people in accessing services, employment, education, and leisure, without having to own a car. You can find out more about affordable and flexible fares, Lothian Buses’ Tap Tap Cap, and support funding available to those on low incomes with regards to the LEZ.
