Abstract: This report presents the results of a Scoping Study and seeks to identify key issues where academic research can assist in evidence-based policy making in relation to transport and the Scottish economy. Issues considered include: the links between transport and economic development; regulation and structures; travel-to-work in Scotland (including the implications for social inclusion and unemployment); problems specific to rural areas and remote communities; new technologies and transport; and appraising transport investment. It should be stressed that the focus is upon academic economic research, particularly related to economics, and it was not possible, within the time available, to consider the many other disciplines researching transport or to review current policies.
