The people behind Transform Consulting

Transform Consulting is Scotland’s specialist research and communications consultancy for sustainable transport.

We work with a leading group of Associates, all experts in sustainable transport in Scotland, whose profiles are below. Our projects also involve the Transform Scotland core team, and the Creatives in our other social enterprise Transform Creative, Scotland’s specialist design and communications agency for the third sector.

As part of Transform Scotland, we have access to a powerful national network of transport operators, businesses, local authorities and third sector groups, alongside grassroots knowledge and contacts. This allows us to communicate and disseminate our research findings so as to have a widespread influence and real impact.

As a social enterprise all our profits are reinvested in Transform Scotland’s charitable work advocating environmentally sustainable, socially inclusive and economically responsible transport.
