Sustainable school travel

Our Active Travel Strategy sets out our aims to encourage people to walk, cycle or use public transport instead of using a car.

We're working with schools and parents to:

  • reduce car use to reduce traffic and pollution.
  • provide choices for travel and make sure that transport is not a barrier against going to school.
  • improve travel safety.
  • improve the health of children and young people.
  • make people aware of and promote environmentally sustainable travel.

You can find out more about projects to support schools and get help with planning active journeys on our safe and active travel initiatives for schools page.
