Travel & Transport

Background

Transport plays a crucial role in meeting the current challenges to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the UK and sustainable travel initiatives offer an opportunity to make a real contribution by decarbonising transport. Sustainable travel initiatives play a key role in delivering local objectives around health, congestion, air quality, education, economic development and social inclusion. This TSN meets to share these ideas and offer support to those at all stages of the journey.

Topics which have been covered in the past include: strategies for promoting cycling as an alternative form of transport for local journeys by looking at travel behaviour and capturing these through good quality planning before infrastructure is put in place; promoting safe and healthy journeys to college/university such as cycling, walking and public transport, and car sharing or car clubs.

These TSNs are run in association with ActTravelwise.
