Introduce congestion charge for those who commute into city
Congestion Charing will reduce car use and encourage more public transport but also bike use. Traffic is largely made up of those commuting into the city from elsewhere. Encourage those driving from far out to use park and bike facilities. This scheme could pay for cycling infrastructure and bike hire schemes. St. John's road, morning side, Queensferry road are all jam packed in usual times by commuters. We should discourage this and encourage switching modes. Some will still want to drive but some will cycle if infrastructure and help is there.
Why the contribution is important
Reducing cars in the city centre / inside bypass by charging can help raise cash for schemes to improve cycling and walking and using public transport.
swtich modes at periphery and this helps the people living in the city itself.
