Local Sustainable Transport Fund - Kent Connected

Kent Connected is working towards making sustainable travel easier for Kent residents.

Our projects

Journey planning

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.
