Smarter Travel is about using our resources smarter.
It’s about reducing the amount of journeys we make in private motor vehicles, thus simultaneously reducing pollution and the demand for oil.
It’s about thinking before we travel – can some or all of our journey be made on foot, by bike, or by public transport?
But the benefits don’t stop there; walking and cycling are good for you. The research shows that you will feel better and live longer if you exercise regularly. Why not build that exercise time into your work day, rather than tagging it on at the end of the day, when you’re tired and it’s dark outside…
For children, the studies show improved performance in the classroom and better concentration levels when a child has walked or cycled to school. So, why not get a step ahead of the class and get on your bike!
