Let's Work Together to Tackle and Adapt to Climate Change (Phase 4) Transport

Closes 31 Jan 2021

General Questions

 

6. Prior to this questionnaire were you aware of the targets set out by the Scottish Government to tackle Climate Change relating to the transport* sector?

Scottish Government targets to tackle climate change:

Scottish Government targets to tackle climate change can be found at the following link:

www.pkc.gov.uk/media/45280/Climate-Change-Targets/pdf/Climate_Change_-_Targets.pdf?m=637115746014170000

The main targets include:

  • *Decarbonising Scotland’s railways by 2035
  • Phasing out new petrol and diesel cars by 2032
  • Creating the conditions to phase out the need for all new petrol and diesel
  • Vehicles in Scotland’s public sector fleet by 2030 and phasing out the need for all petrol and diesel cars from the public sector fleet by 2025

 

 

 

Decarbonisation Definition:

Decarbonisation

Decreasing the ration of carbon dioxide (CO2) or all greenhouse gas emissions related to primary energy production. Full decarbonisation means zero unabated CO2 emissions from energy generation and industrial processes (i.e. not captured by carbon sequestration or storage).

7. How easy/difficult do you think it will be to achieve these targets set by the Scottish Government?
8. The Scottish Government has set targets for us all to act upon and reach together as a nation. Thinking about Perth and Kinross as a whole, do you think we should aim to deliver these targets and priorities earlier than is required by Scottish law?
9. How good do you think that active travel links and options (e.g pedestrianised areas, cycle lanes, bicycle lockers and active travel hubs) are in your area?

Active Travel

The term active travel means a form of transport that may include, but is not limited to, walking, wheeling (bike, scooter, e-bike, etc.) in order for someone to get from ‘A’ to ‘B’.

10. What forms of active travel do you participate in during an average week? (Please select all options that apply)
11. What would encourage you to use active travel methods more?
12. How good do you think that sustainable travel links and options (e.g. Park & Ride facilities and real time public transport information) are in your area?

Sustainable travel:

Sustainable travel and transport can be defined as the act of walking, cycling, using public transport and/or car sharing. In general, a sustainable mode of transport is one that can improve the physical wellbeing of those using such modes of transport, but also benefits the environment due to a reduced level of congestion and pollution.

13. What forms of sustainable travel do you participate in during an average week? (Please select all options that apply)
14. What would encourage you to use sustainable travel methods more?
15. Please rank the factors from the list below as to what you consider most important when getting from ‘A’ to ‘B’ when using either active or sustainable travel (1 being the least important and 7 being the most important):
16. How would rate the availability of bus services in your area pre-Covid19?

How would you rate the reliability of bus services in your area pre-Covid19?

How would rate the affordability of bus services in your area pre-Covid19?

17. How would rate the availability of rail services in your area pre-Covid19?

How would you rate the reliability of rail services in your area pre-Covid19?

How would rate the affordability of rail services in your area pre-Covid19?

18. How would you rate the level of access to community transport* in your area?

*Community Transport is about providing flexible and accessible community-led solution to meet local transport needs.

19. How would you rate the level of demand responsive transport in your area?
20. Are you aware of any mobility groups in your area?

Mobility Groups:

Mobility groups help communities to work together to provide mobility services to those in need. For example, minibuses for taking patients to and from doctors/hospital appointments where the patient has no form of transport and/or is vulnerable
