Buckinghamshire County Council promotes the use of sustainable travel to schools (link to School Travel Plan page), businesses (link to Business Travel Plan page), developers (link to Developer Travel Plan page), commuters and the general public.
With an ever increasing amount of cars on the road the promotion of sustainable travel is important to help reduce congestion and get people active on their journeys.
Additional benefits of travelling by sustainable means are:
- Reducing pollution
- Improving your health by walking or cycling
- Improving road safety awareness
- Saving you money! Walking and cycling are free and car sharing or using public transport can save money on running costs of a car.
- Better relationships with the community. For example, by reducing congestion around a school or business you may be able to improve relationships with your neighbours
