A shift to zero emission transport options is essential to quickly cut carbon emissions. Rethinking how we travel and developing a network that makes it safe, convenient, and attractive to walk, cycle and take a bus for day-to-day trips is vital to making that change.

The Active Travel strategy sets the framework for investment to achieve this. We don’t expect everyone to walk or cycle every trip, but if we can enable enough people to change from their private vehicle for more trips, transport generated emissions will be reduced.
