Transport


Growth in traffic is causing increasing problems in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. Congestion is forecast to at least double and possibly treble by 2021. The City of Edinburgh Council has established a new company, Transport Initiatives for Edinburgh (tie ltd) which is responsible for delivering a number of major new transport projects for and around Edinburgh in the next 10–15 years, including the tram network.

As part of the Council's strategy, many businesses in Edinburgh, including the University, have to provide sustainable 'green' transport plans. Consequently, Heriot-Watt University is working on its own transport plan, with the help of SISTech, a not-for-profit sustainable development institute, that is 50% owned by the University.

This website will keep you up to date with information on the University transport plan for the Edinburgh Campus, as well as providing information on public transport to the University and updates on transport issues in Edinburgh.
