Encouraging people to walk, cycle, use public transport, carpool, and reduce their overall need to travel not only makes environmental sense, but is also good for reducing traffic on our roads. A travel plan looks at how to reduce the number of vehicles coming into a location by utilising walking, cycling, skating, scooting, bussing and ride sharing. It is not anti-car but is about how to encourage people to look at their car use and choose healthier and cheaper alternatives where available.
The key components to a successful travel plan are:
- Commitment to reducing car usage, especially single occupancy vehicles.
- Commitment to promoting the active alternatives to car use.
- Leadership and ownership of the travel plan.
- Tailored to meet the specific needs of the school.
- Simple, clear, self-managing and measurable objectives.
