Smarter travel is all about finding more sustainable forms of travel, away from single occupancy vehicles. This includes active travel (walking, cycling), public transport (buses, trains), car sharing, electric vehicles and reducing the need to travel altogether.
We provide travel information and promote the opportunities to make a switch in your travel behaviour. Some of the benefits of smarter travel are:
- a healthier environment - improved local air quality, improved traffic flow easing traffic congestion, wider impact on Climate Change
- improved physical and mental health and well-being
- the opportunity to explore our beautiful district
- economic benefits - save money on fuel, invest in local transport services and local businesses
