Local Sustainable Transport Fund - Kent Connected
Kent Connected is working towards making sustainable travel easier for Kent residents.
We are developing a journey planning tool that will show all the different transport options available to help you plan your door to door journey in and around Kent.
It will show you real-time travel information such as congestion and updated public transport times.
By travelling sustainably you can:
- improve your impact on the environment
- save time
- save money
- improve your health.
