Welcome to CoMoUK’s course on shared transport

This course has been funded by Transport Scotland, and although, whilst it is tailored for planners and developers in Scotland, the majority of its content will be equally relevant across the UK.

Shared transport can be defined as a mode of transport that is shared across multiple users, rather than the model of owning your mode of transport. Shared transport options include car clubs, bike share and ride share. Through this course, we will share our knowledge and examples of shared transport and how it can be utilised and incorporated within new developments.

Our course has four modules and as you work your way through we will talk about policy, procedures and the wide ranging benefits of shared transport.
