Managing the wider issues of campus transport through a Strategic Transport and Travel Plan

The University of Glasgow’s vision is to develop a campus that is “ for today and the future, is innovative and courageous in design, and is reflective of the University’s history and of its ambition, inspiring current and future generation”. To achieve this, the University appointed us to update their current 2010-2015 Travel Plan to include wider issues of campus transport management through a Strategic Transport and Travel Plan (STTP) covering 2016-2025. The aim? Identify, to support and promote comfortable and sustainable modes of travel around the campuses.

In developing the STTP, we paid close attention to the University’s Development Frameworks, their Carbon Management Plan and the expanding and changing use of the Estate. The STTP considered transport matters across the University including providing overarching policy guidance for the development of specific campus masterplans and building specific BREEAM compliant Travel Plans in the future. 

The final STTP, and supporting documents, covered a much more wide-ranging set of issues than a traditional Travel Plan, including innovative attempts to quantify carbon emissions associated with the University’s’ travel patterns. The result? A plan that identifies and eliminates unnecessary travel and reduces the impact of transport generated by the University on the rest of the community as well as the local and wider environment.
