Lying at the heart of Scotland’s transport network, and covering the Angus, Dundee City, Perth & Kinross and Stirling Council areas, Tactran is the statutory Regional Transport Partnership with a duty to create a Regional Transport Strategy and oversee its delivery. The Partnership is also a statutory Community Planning and Development Planning agency and has a key role in supporting the development and implementation City Deals.
