Crieff on the Go
Improving your environment one step at a time
Crieff on the Go is helping local residents and visitors to improve the environment of Crieff and make it a more pleasant place to visit and linger.
Developed thanks to funding from the Scottish Government to improve air quality, Crieff on the Go aims to enhance the town's environment, by reducing traffic and therefore traffic pollution, in addition to helping the people of Crieff to be a bit more active.
It is part of a range of activities to improve transport in the town. Perth and Kinross Council, bus operators, Tactran and others are working to provide good quality infrastructure and transport services where they can. However, it's up to everyone that travels in Crieff to do their bit.
Cars have an important role to play in our transport system, and are essential for many people's journeys. Yet no-one wants Crieff to be dominated by traffic. Too many cars on the roads are affecting Crieff's environment and increasing risks to people's health. The High Street forms part of the main A85, so there will be some through traffic, but recent surveys have shown that two-thirds of traffic on the High Street on a typical weekday is local. Local people therefore can play a big part in improving the town.
The campaign will highlight that there are good alternatives for many journeys. We will be engaging with the community in a range of ways over the coming months, including with local primary schools and community groups. The campaign will also give you the opportunity to give your views about the best ways to reduce pollution in the High Street so please engage with it to put forward your ideas.
Walk for some short journeys
If you currently drive in and around Crieff on a regular basis, try walking for some of your short journeys. It's a great way to get some of the exercise most of us need and it's free! It really doesn't take too long: from the Community Campus to the High Street is only half a mile - around 10 minutes walk for most people.
If you need to drive to the town centre, leave the car in one place when you get there, rather than trying to drive as close as possible to each place you need to visit.
Go by bus
Crieff has its own town bus service, Service 45, which serves most of Crieff including the key destinations within the town including the High Street, Community Campus and Crieff Hospital.
If you are travelling to destinations outside of Crieff, Service 15 provides an hourly service between Comrie, Crieff and Perth and you can use Service 47 for travel to Dunblane and Stirling.
