The Connected Places Catapult, a new organisation which combines the Transport Systems and Future Cities Catapults, has officially begun operations. The new Connected Places Catapult will accelerate smarter living and travelling, in and between the places of tomorrow. The new Catapult will grow businesses with innovations in mobility services and the built environment, that enable new levels of physical, digital and social connectedness – driving even faster growth for the UK economy.
The Connected Places Catapult will focus on working across boundaries, bureaucracies, public and private sectors, on a whole system approach to achieve this goal. Like the legacy organisations before it, the new Catapult will engage academic networks, diverse SME ecosystems, business and government departments as it seeks to foster new markets, boost demand for innovation and increase the supply of proven products and services across transport, cities, towns and villages.

The Scottish Government is the executive arm of the devolved government for Scotland.
The Scottish Government, known as the Scottish Executive prior to 2007, is responsible in Scotland for all issues that are not explicitly reserved to the United Kingdom Parliament at Westminster by Schedule 5 of the Scotland Act 1998.
Devolved matters include health, education, justice, home affairs, rural affairs, economic development and transport.
The Scottish Government is led by a First Minister, nominated by the Scottish Parliament and by the Queen, who then appoints a Ministerial team, with the approval of Parliament, from the elected MSPs. The Scottish Law Officers, the Lord Advocate and Solicitor General, can be appointed from outside the Parliament's membership, but are subject to its approval. The First Minister, the Cabinet Secretaries and the Scottish Law Officers are members of the Scottish Government. They are collectively known as the 'Scottish Ministers'.
Parliamentary elections in Scotland, initiated in 1999 when the Scottish Parliament was re-convened after a gap of almost 300 years, are now held every five years.
Of 129 MSPs 73 are elected from first-past-the-post constituencies with a further 56 are returned from eight regions, each of which elect seven MSPs as a form of mixed member proportional representation.
New Administrations are appointed after each election.
Previous Administrations have served for the periods
At Transport Times we have many years' experience in the Transport Industry. Transport Times offers an informed view of the latest developments in transport and is a strong supporter of sustainable and integrated transport.
Our insight, opinion and analysis covers all modes of transport and such key areas as road pricing, lorry charging, local transport, rail, airports, freight, technology, safety, regional policies, investment and public private partnerships.
Transport policy, so long neglected, is coming to the top of the political agenda. You need to make informed decisions, not be left to wonder what is going on in the heads of senior politicians and transport executives. You get that information by reading Transport Times and by attending Transport Times Events.
At Cubic Transportation Systems, we believe that to take the right path, you sometimes have to create it. That’s why, even though we helped revolutionize the transportation industry, we’re dedicated to reinventing it.
We are the leading integrator of payment and information solutions and related services for intelligent travel applications in the transportation industry. We deliver integrated systems for transportation and traffic management, providing tools for travelers to choose the smartest and easiest way to travel and pay for their journeys, while enabling transportation authorities and agencies to manage demand across the entire transportation network – all in real-time.
