SNP to debate free public transport for all

Scotland’s ruling Scottish National Party is planning to discuss introducing free-at-the-point-of-use public transport across the country.

The pro-independence paper The National has seen the final list of debates for the conference on 28-30 November which includes a debate on the transport idea as part of a wider discussion about green ideas.

“Conference… believes that the provision of high quality, clean, frequent, reliable, extensive and comprehensive public transport – free at the point of use – is worth real consideration as we look to tackle the climate emergency,” the paper quotes from the agenda.

There are also discussions about new direct ferry services between Scotland and mainland Europe and a freight route to North America.

There is no mention in the report about how these plans may be funded.
