Falkirk has been announced as the location of one of five active and low carbon travel and transport hubs across Scotland.

The projects across Scotland have been successful in bidding for finance from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support innovative hubs which encourage the shift towards active or low carbon modes of travel and transportation.

The ERDF Low Carbon Travel and Transport (LCTT) Challenge Fund was launched in December 2016

One of the five projects will be undertaken by Falkirk Council and its delivery partner Forth Environment Link. Together the partners will develop a public-facing active travel hub in Falkirk town centre and a low carbon vehicle hub at Falkirk Community Stadium. The Project will provide 20 electric vehicle charging bays and a 168-bay solar array to harness energy for charging at the low carbon hub.  The active travel hub will provide public access to bikes, e-bikes, facilities, maintenance equipment, education, and public bike share.  These will be combined with measures to change behaviour to encourage healthier, greener travel choices.
