What is sustainable travel?
Any form of transport can be sustainable:
- Public transport.
- Car sharing.
- Electric, hybrid and biodiesel cars (vehicles that keep carbon emissions, and other pollutants, to a minimum).
Sustainable travel is any form of transport that keeps damage to our environment, and therefore the future, to a minimum.
There are a number of ways that we can make our use of transport more sustainable:
- Ride sharing: reducing the number of single occupant journeys can have a huge impact on pollution and congestion.
- Travel plans: when businesses, schools and other organisations create a travel plan, they can make a real difference to the transport choice their employees and visitors make.
- Car clubs: an alternative to private car ownership - members hire cars as and when they need them.
- Walking buses - a walking bus scheme can benefit children, parents, the school and the local community
- School Travel: planning your route to school and how you travel through school travel planning.
- Reduce carbon dioxide emissions: how we use our cars, and the type of cars we decide to buy, can affect our own carbon dioxide emissions.
