Motion by Councillor Lang - Lothian Buses

Motion by Councillor Lang - Lothian Buses

 

1.       Committee recognises the critical role of Lothian Buses in providing high quality public transport across the city, thereby helping the Council to reduce congestion, improve air quality and help Edinburgh become carbon neutral by 2030.

 

2.       Committee believes that, as a publicly owned company, Lothian Buses should:

          a)       operate in as open and transparent a manner as possible.

b)       be open to having its performance and decision making          scrutinised by elected councillors.

c)       have an opportunity to highlight how the Council can better support its operations.

 

3.       Committee therefore agrees:

          a)       that the Convener invite the managing director and chair of         Lothian Buses to give a presentation to the committee at a        future meeting, with an opportunity for committee members to      ask questions.

b)       that such an agenda item should become an annual part of the     committee’s work-plan.

Motion by Councillor Miller - Bike buses

Motion by Councillor Miller - Bike buses

Committee:

1.             Thanks parents and other volunteers for creating and regularly organising “bike buses” for pupils to travel to school together safely, and commends the approach which is helping young people of all ages and abilities to cycle to school

2.             Recognises the significant volunteer time and effort required to organise one bike bus per month, both on the day and in preparation, and thanks volunteers at Sciennes Primary School and Blackford Safe Routes for their work to create a guide to setting up and running a bike bus which enables more schools to offer a bike bus1

3.             Notes the significant challenges still remaining, for example offering more frequent bike buses, increasing the number of routes to schools and the number of schools offering a bike bus

4.             Agrees to consult with bike bus volunteers and pupils on challenges they have identified and to bring back an update to Committee in two cycles on actions to support and enable bike buses to school
