History

SPT was first set up as Greater Glasgow Passenger Transport Executive in 1972 to take over the Glasgow Corporation's tramway and public transport department and to co-ordinate public transport in the Clyde Valley. In the 1980s it expanded to become Strathclyde Passenger Transport Executive, (STPE), under the overall direction of Strathclyde Regional Council. Following the abolition of the regional council in 1996, it was reestablished as an incorporated body, controlled by councillors drawn from the 12 successor unitary authorities and nine transport experts appointed by the Scottish Government: The City of Glasgow Council (Mòr-bhaile Ghlaschu in Gaelic) is one of the 32 Scottish unitary authorities, formerly Glasgow District Council and Glasgow Corporation in Glasgow, Scotland. ...

Strathclyde (Srath Chluaidh in Gaelic) was one of the regional council areas of Scotland from 1974 to 1996. ... A unitary authority is a type of local authority, which has a single tier and is responsible for all local government functions within its area. ...

Subsequent to the passing of the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005, on 1 April 2006 it became the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport. The new national agency Transport Scotland was created at the same time. At this latest reorganisation SPT gained responsibility for planning for all regional transport (not just public transport) though it lost a number of specific powers relating to rail franchising and concessionary fares. There will be no change in abbreviation (still SPT) or branding or in its major operational functions. Location Geography Area Ranked 2nd  - Total 6,909 km²  - % Water  ?

Bus services

Up until 1986 SPT (and the Greater Glasgow Passenger Transport Executive before it) was directly responsible for running the municipal bus services in Glasgow, and owned both the buses and the necessary supporting infrastructure. The bus deregulation by the Transport Act 1985 deregulated the bus industry and SPT was subsequently forced to sell off its bus operations. The main bus operator in Glasgow City is now First Group. Autobus redirects here. ... Bus deregulation in Great Britain came into force on 26 October 1986, and is formally known as the 1985 Transport Act. ... First Group PLC (LSE: FGP) is a British transport company operating in the United Kingdom, Ireland and North America, with headquarters in Aberdeen, Scotland. ...


SPT owns Glasgow's Buchanan Bus Station, the largest bus station in Scotland. Buchanan Bus Station is the main bus terminus in Glasgow for journeys between the city and other towns in Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom. ...


The Greater Glasgow Passenger Transport Executive (GGPTE), the forerunner of SPTE, started operations in 1973, taking over the entire municipal owned and operated bus, and Underground railway, services of Glasgow Corporation Transport (GCT), which had been in existence from 1894 to 1973. They used a new livery which was a variation of the previous GCT colours of green, yellow and cream. The new livery had Verona green on the lower panels, and yellow between decks, white was used for window surrounds, and the roof. A stylised "GG" logo was applied to the forward yellow side panels. This page refers to urban rail mass transit systems. ... Rather unusually, these Angels wear white hart (deer) badges, with the personal livery of King Richard II of England, who commissioned this, the Wilton diptych, about 1400 A livery is a uniform or other sign worn in a non-military context on a person or object (such as an airplane... For other uses, see Logo (disambiguation). ...


As GCT had done, the GGPTE continued to buy large numbers of Leyland Atlantean double-decker buses, they were by far the most numerous type of bus in service, but GGPTE also introduced new bus types such as the Scania-MCW Metropolitan, and the front-engined, Scottish-built, Volvo Ailsa. The Leyland Atlantean was a double-decker bus built by Leyland in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1986. ... For the chocolate bar, see Double Decker (chocolate bar). ... Scania Metropolitan was the second bus (and the first double-deck bus) model which was built jointly by MCW and Scania. ... The Volvo Ailsa B55 was a front-engined double-deck chassis built in Scotland by Ailsa, Volvos British commercial vehicle agency. ...


At the start of the 1980s GGPTE became SPTE. Revised liveries were gradually introduced, with the green and yellow replacing most of the white on some buses, and matt black lower deck window surrounds applied to many others, the latter became the livery applied to new buses. Logos also changed, stylised "Trans-Clyde" lettering was displayed below the "GG" logo, which SPTE was also using on rail services and the Underground at the time. Gradually the "GG" logo was discontinued, and "Trans'Clyde" was used alone.


In 1983 SPTE changed their colours to orange and black, the "Trans'Clyde" name was dropped and replaced with "Strathclyde Transport" branding. The name lasted until 1986 due to deregulation of the bus industry, keeping the orange and black colour scheme "Strathclyde's Buses" branding was used. The bus service was still in PTE control until 1993 when Strathclyde's Buses became employee-owned. During that time Strathclyde's Buses formed a low cost subsidiary called GCT - Comlaw No 313 Ltd which marked a return of the Trans Clyde era Verona Green, Black and Yellow as well as taking over Kelvin Central Buses. Both Strathclyde's Buses and GCT colour Schemes lasted until 1996 when First Group took over Strathclyde's Buses. Employment is a contract between two parties, one being the employer and the other being the employee. ... Kelvin Central Buses Ltd was a bus operating subsidiary of the Scottish Bus Group formed in July 1989 from the merger of Kelvin Scottish and Central Scottish in preparation for privatisation, and operated until July 1998 when it became First Glasgow (No. ...

Reconstitution

In April 2006 under the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005, the Strathclyde Passenger Transport Authority and the Strathclyde Passenger Transport Executive were abolished and a new transport authority, the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, was established along with another six regional transport partnerships covering the rest of Scotland.


The Partnership is led by Chair Councillor Alistair Watson and Chief Executive Ron Culley.

Main article: Glasgow Subway

The Glasgow Subway is the only underground metro system in Scotland. Opened in 1896, it is the third-oldest system of its type in the world, and the only one that has never been expanded from its original route. The circular route serves the city centre, the city's fashionable West End, and parts of the south side. Between the early 1930s and 2003 the system was officially known as the "Glasgow Underground", but many citizens always continued referring to it as the "Subway"[citation needed]. In 2003, the "Subway" title was again used officially, with station signage and publications changed to reflect this. The Subway system is unique in terms of its scale and gauge - the Victorians designing an early underground tunnel through which the rolling stock had to pass which was not subsequently replicated in subsequent, land based systems. This has resulted in an expensive transportation mechanism which has proved stubborn to modernisation. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

This new line might be ready for the Commonwealth Games in 2014 and would serve Celtic Football Stadium.

Following the Beeching Axe of 1963, the Greater Glasgow Passenger Transport Executive (GGPTE) was created to oversee all suburban railways in the Glasgow area. When the GGPTE was formed the trains that ran in the GGPTE area had their colours in the BR blue livery but instead of the familiar BR logo a GG logo was used. Later on, the trains were repainted in British Rail Blue-Grey livery, again the GG logo was used with the addition of "Trans-Clyde" branding. In the last BR Blue-Grey livery used by SPT, the BR logo was now used along with "Strathclyde Transport" branding on the centre of each car. From 1985 as with bus services and the underground, orange and black livery was used with a black BR logo. The current colours on the SPT rail network are carmine and cream. Many railway lines were closed as a result of the Beeching Axe The Beeching Axe is an informal name for the British Governments attempt in the 1960s to reduce the cost of running the British railway system. ...
