Travel plans are used to encourage travel by means other than the single car user and are often included in air quality action plans as a measure to reduce pollutant emissions. There are four types of travel plans:
- school travel plans
- workplace travel plans
- residential travel plans
- personalised travel plans
More information on each can be found at Act Travel Wise.
A number of initiatives are in place to encourage children to travel to school in a sustainable mode. School travel plans aim to improve children’s safety to and from school and encourage walking and cycling, leading to a reduction in pollutant emissions. Local authorities should encourage all schools to produce a travel plan and information on safe routes to school can be found using the document available on this page.
