Objectives

Within the region – and nationally - we work with the public, communities, businesses and key stakeholders such as the Local Authorities, Transport Operators, Highways Agencies, Healthcare Providers and Environmental Agencies.

We promote and encourage behavioural change in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, working to help people  access affordable, safe, enjoyable and healthy forms of transport - from avoiding single-occupancy car journeys through to taking up car sharing, encouraging walking, learning to cycle and choosing the best bus ticket for your journeys. We work across all modes of transport to combat the barriers to using them. We enthuse people and help them to choose the right mode of transport for their journey and to give them the training, tools and routes that will help them on their way….and keep them committed to greener forms of transport for the long term.

We use fun, engaging, educational ways to involve people – such as arts workshops, family events, multilingual walks and rides…and more.  We understand that not everyone will feel the same way that we do about transport, but we use our enthusiasm, skills and extensive networks to ensure that we inspire a change amongst the people that we engage with.

Sustainable and active travel modes are important tools to combat health inequalities, social isolation, community cohesion and transport related barriers to employment, services and learning.
