The UpperTay Transport Group Holds Survey on Access in Highland Perthshire

The Upper Tay Transport Group is looking to hear from the community how access to transportation can be improved in Highland Perthshire.

In particular, they highlight that Aberfeldy and Kinloch Rannoch are among the most access deprived areas in Scotland.

A spokesperson said: “You may be aware of the Upper Tay Transport project that has been developing over the last couple of years. 

“The purpose of the project is to improve transport in the Upper Tay area for the benefit of community and environment. 

“We want to imagine a community where transport was not a barrier to anyone or anything. 

“Currently Aberfeldy and Kinloch Rannoch rate as the most access deprived community in Scotland, according to the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2020.  We want to change that.  We want to imagine a brighter, post-COVID community.”

Already the transport group offers services which help connect communities across the area.

Among their initiates includes a community bus service, community lifts, active travel and much more.

Now their survey is looking to see what improvements are needed the most, they’re looking for the reasons why people move around Highland Perthshire, where people need to go and when.

A spokesperson added: “We are asking everyone – individuals of all ages, people involved in local businesses, people involved in local schools, groups and organisations – to tell us what you think.  Please complete our survey.

“And do share this with anyone you think may be able to help us plan a future bus service in the area.”
