The Transport (Scotland) Act 2005 placed a statutory duty on the seven Regional Transport Partnerships (RTPs) in Scotland to produce a Regional Transport Strategy (RTS) for their area. The RTS influences all of the future plans and activities of the organisation and informs future national and local transport strategies.

Local authorities throughout Scotland are required to prepare Local Transport Strategies (LTS) under the provisions of the Transport (Scotland) Act 2001. The main purpose of an LTS, is to set out a local authority’s strategy and proposals for transport over a three-year period.
