about sustrans

Sustrans is the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. We are engineers and educators, experts and advocates. We connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute.

Sustrans works in partnership, bringing people together to find the right solutions. We make the case for walking and cycling by using robust evidence and showing what can be done.

We are grounded in communities and believe that grassroots support combined with political leadership drives real change, fast.

Since 2010, we have worked with the Scottish Government, local authorities and dozens of different groups and organisations to deliver thousands of projects through our Community Links programme, the Community Links PLUS design competition, Safer Routes to School funding, redesign of streets and the developing the National Cycle Network.

“for commuting or leisure, more people across Scotland will be able to enjoy the benefits of greener and healthier modes of transport”
