Will Scotland tip the scale for fare-free #publictransport?

An independent Scotland can establish itself as a global leader in climate action, the Scottish Greens will insist today as they launch their manifesto. 
The party, standing in more than 20 Scottish seats, will put climate change, free public transport and revamping region deals at the heart of their appeal to voters.

They will commit to rolling out free public transport, which would be paid for by the doubling of vehicle excise duty on high polluting cars and scrapping the freeze on fuel duty.
