Walking & Cycling

Walking and cycling to college

We encourage students and staff to walk or cycle to college wherever possible. Active and sustainable travel has a wide range of benefits:

  • Improves health and wellbeing
  • Reduces congestion
  • Improves local air quality
  • Quieter and safer streets
  • Improved community relationships
  • Financial savings

Using their unique insight, they support students and staff in choosing to walk and cycle for more of their everyday journeys.
