Collated using learning and data from the 30+ members of the SCSG, the report presents the five key barriers currently preventing greater use of train travel by the Scottish classical music sector.
The findings in the report are the results of a survey distributed to all SCSG members, as well as feedback and learning from over two years of regular meetings. The report highlights the following key barriers preventing greater use of train travel:
- 1- Timetables
- 2- Ticket costs
- 3- Travel with large instruments
- 4- International connections
- 5- Accessibility
In order to reach government emissions reduction targets, it is vital that society as a whole finds new ways to travel. The report concludes that by addressing the above challenges, transport providers, local authorities and the government can support classical music organisations, and concurrently audiences and society more widely, to reduce their travel-related carbon emissions. The report is both a snapshot of the current situation, and a summary that can be used to influence future planning decisions.
