SustainableTravel Information





Sustainable Travel refers to any travel option that reduces the negative impacts on the environment. It is usually compared against single-occupant car journeys.

Walking, cycling and public transport are the most common types of sustainable travel. Although schemes such as car sharing also count, as they reduce the number of people travelling in cars on their own, reducing pollution, congestion and cost. Swapping car journeys for public transport or cycling helps reduce our carbon footprint.
