CRAG campaigns for better public transport, especially rail and light rail development, in the Edinburgh area. In particular, we have been campaigning for the development of an integrated and sustainable transport strategy for the Edinburgh travel to work area. To achieve this, we believe that the East of Scotland needs its own regional transport authority to co-ordinate and integrate all buses, train and tram services in Edinburgh, the Lothians and south Fife.
CRAG recently initiated a campaign for the reopening of Abbeyhill Station in Edinburgh. We feel this could be done at little additional cost as part of the EGIP programme, whereby new track is to be laid to provide stabling for trains and free up platform space at Waverley. See our Publications page for relevant papers.
CRAG has produced several campaigning documents in recent years to promote our transport vision and argue the case for more funding for public transport and less for roads. Our Vision for Rail sets out some of the national changes required to deliver better rail services across the UK. See the Publications page to find out what is available.
