What is active travel?

Active travel means walking or cycling as a means of transport in order to get to a particular destination such as work, the shops or to visit friends. It does not cover walking and cycling done purely for pleasure, for health reasons, or simply walking the dog. Active travel can be for complete journeys or parts of a journey.

What are the benefits?

Active travel can:

  • improve health
  • save money
  • reduce traffic congestion
  • increase levels of physical activity
  • improve air quality.
