MSPs are seeking public views on a proposed new transport law which includes a ban on pavement parking and double parking.

The Transport Bill also has plans for more low-emissions zones, Scotland-wide smart ticketing, giving local transport authorities more options for bus services such as running their own buses, and improving roadworks regulations.

Holyrood's Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee is examining the Bill and has produced a survey to collect public views.

Committee convener Edward Mountain said: "Issues such as low-emission zones for vehicles, pavement and double parking, and smart ticketing have the potential to impact on how people travel around Scotland, and we want to find out whether these proposals are the right ones for local communities.

"We know that transport and connectivity are of utmost importance to people across Scotland, and the committee wants to hear the views of the public and stakeholder organisations to help shape how the committee and the parliament responds to the Scottish Government's proposals.

"The committee has today issued a survey to ask people a number of questions, ranging from how your local authority could use the new powers proposed in the Bill to improve local bus services, and whether they support proposals on smart ticketing and prohibitions on pavement and double parking."
