Now in their 21st year, the Scottish Transport Awards awards continue to recognise excellence in transport and reward innovation and progress for transport initiatives which are really working in Scotland. Supported by the Scottish Government, Transport Scotland, Network Rail, Scotland’s Railway, The Railway Industry Association and CPT Scotland, this year’s award ceremony will take place on 20 June in Glasgow. The awards are free to enter and the judges say they welcome any updates to projects submitted in previous years.

Awards include Best Bus Service; Most Innovative Transport Project; Excellence in Technology & Innovation; Public Transport Operator of the Year; Frontline Employee of the Year, and many others, plus a new category for 2024 of Best Practice in Transport Planning.

“These Awards are a great opportunity to recognise the contribution by our professionals in improving and enhancing Scotland’s transport networks. Every day Transport Scotland sees the effort, collaboration and results from everyone involved in providing a successful journey for Scotland’s travelling public,” said Alison Irvine, Interim Chief Executive of Transport Scotland and Chair of the Scottish Transport Awards Judging Panel.
