Page 1 of 16

Closes 3 May 2024


Transport Scotland has gathered feedback from previous workshops and consultations to identify priorities for the future of Island transport connectivity: ferry networks, supported by the integration with other transport services. This information has contributed to the development of themes, which are the focus for the Islands Connectivity Plan.  

The following key themes emerged:    

  • community voice and transparency  
  • reliability and resilience  
  • accessibility   
  • timetables, unplanned and essential travel  
  • integration of services 
  • capacity and demand  
  • freight
  • vessels and ports  
  • low carbon and environmental impact  
  • ferry fares  
  • local authority services 
Do you think these key themes capture the main aspects of transport connectivity for island and peninsula communities?
