Travel on Subway using your Scotland Loves Local Glasgow Gift Card
SPT signs up to accept Scotland Loves Local Gift Card as council distributes more than £8m-worth to 85,000 households across the city
Scotland Loves Local Glasgow Gift Cards can now be spent on the Subway as we support a multi-million pound drive to boost city businesses.
SPT’s support adds yet another way in which people across Glasgow can spend using the gift cards - as a way to travel, as well as shop, visit attractions and eat out.
And it comes as 85,000 eligible low income households across the city receive a gift card worth £105 each from Glasgow City Council to help them manage the cost of living crisis.
Scotland’s Towns Partnership is the organisation behind the Scotland Loves Local campaign, from which the gift card concept has grown.
SPT Chair, Councillor Stephen Dornan, said: “We are delighted to have Subway join the Scotland Loves Local Gift Card.
“As the only transport provider on the card, it makes perfect sense to use your card to travel on the Subway and then spend in shops, restaurants and at various attractions around the city. It’s the perfect day out and will hopefully give our local economy a well-deserved boost.”
Chief Officer Phil Prentice said: “We are delighted to welcome SPT to the list of those organisations and businesses who accept the card - their support helps demonstrate the flexibility that the gift card offers.
“As an organisation, we encourage sustainable travel and the use of public transport. People can now use their Scotland Loves Local Glasgow Gift Card to pay to reach local businesses - and then spend with them using the cards. It’s the perfect partnership.”
Almost 750 businesses across Glasgow have now signed up to accept the gift cards.
