Active travel

Active Travel focuses on physical activity (walking, cycling, and the use of public transport) as your transport mode as opposed to driving your car.  It has great health, financial and environmental benefits.

Active travel options are some of the most efficient and effective ways to incorporate regular exercise into our daily lives. By being active you can reduce many long-term health risks, enhance your mental and physical health and your well-being. You will also help our community by easing congestion on the transport network and reduce the environmental impacts associated.


Walking is great exercise and is one of the best exercises for your complete health (physical, mental and social well-being).
