Climate Action Strathaven
About Climate Action Strathaven
Responding to community demand, we launched the 3C bus as the first regular public transport route linking Strathaven and Glasgow in over 30 years. Despite not being considered viable by commercial operators, we were confident in our local knowledge and market research. We therefore took the unusual step - as a small community charity - of becoming a registered operator, leasing a 53-seater coach and employing local drivers. The result has been a huge success with 28,000 tickets issued in 6 months through a community-owned asset which brings work, study and leisure opportunities to thousands of locals, whilst tackling Climate Change.
