To ask the Scottish Government what percentage of the transport budget is allocated to cycling policy (a) nationally and (b) at a local authority level.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 2 September 2016

In 2016-17 the Scottish Government has committed to matching record levels of funding for active travel and the percentage of the (a) national transport budget will be 1.9%. We have also committed to matching record levels of funding for active travel over the course of this parliamentary session.

Information on (b) the percentage of the transport budget allocated to active travel at a local authority level is not held centrally.
