Active travel simply means making journeys by physically active means - like walking, scooting or cycling.

Positive impacts include:

  • Reduced traffic congestion
  • Reduced air pollution
  • Better physical, mental and social health
  • Smaller carbon footprint to reduce negative impact of climate change.

Good infrastructure for walking and cycling is important, but people also need encouragement, support and guidance to change their behaviours and switch their journeys to either walking or cycling.
