Dear [Name],

I am writing as your constituent to ask you to attend an important Parliamentary Briefing on improving public transport in the Glasgow City Region on Wednesday 8 November 2023, 1-2pm in Committee Room 5 at the Scottish Parliament (see full details below).

For far too long our region has been held back by an expensive, unreliable and uncoordinated public transport network, and this report sets out a clear plan for turning that around.

It is vital that you take the opportunity to go along and learn more, and to do what you can in your role as MSP to help deliver on the report’s recommendations.

Please reply to let me know if you can go, and RSVP to the email address copied below.

Yours sincerely,
