It's time to
make a change.
Thinktravel is a Department for Transport (DfT) funded initiative that gives you information about sustainable travel options like walking, cycling, using the bus and train, or car sharing.
There are lots of benefits from using more active, sustainable forms of travel. A few simple changes can help us:
A list of initiatives that are available in Gloucestershire can be seen here. The list also contains a summary of projects we have already completed.
Our projects are underpinned by high quality research that identifies people’s travel behaviour, and takes account of their travel problems and concerns. So you’ll find plenty of practical, sensible ideas and initiatives on these pages. .
Gloucestershire County Council was successful in their initial funding bid for almost £5 million from the DfT (as part of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund) for the Cheltenham and Gloucester sustainable travel project. This project has been continued and is now available countywide through 2015/16 by another successful application for LSTF2 funding and focused on ensuring the World Cup was a success, working with businesses to help alleviate travel issues and creating station travel plans for all principle railway stations in Gloucestershire.
The project also encourages economic growth and the promotion of health living – linking in with the Cheltenham Civic Pride, Gloucester regeneration projects and other internal departments including public health . Its key aims include: promotion of walking, cycling, car sharing, and use of public transport, along with support for car clubs and electric car charging points.
Please do contact us if you’d like to find out more about any aspect of the Cheltenham and Gloucester sustainable travel bid, or the project itself.
This is currently how people within Gloucestershire travel to work. We are aiming to increase the percentage share of the sustainable travel methods.
