S5W-13426: Jamie Greene (West Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 14 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on people being asked to pay to park their cars at work in order to encourage greater use of public transport.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 11 January 2018

The Scottish Government is strongly committed to encouraging increased use of public transport. That is why we invest over £1billion a year in public transport. It is a matter for individual employers whether they levy a charge on employees to park at work. In our draft Climate Change Plan we propose that, where there are charges to park at workplaces, that these should be used to incentivise ULEVs.
