About us

Two children on bikes

Sustrans makes smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable.

We’re a leading UK charity enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

We work with families, communities, policy-makers and partner organisations so that people are able to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys, with better places and spaces to move through and live in.

We have a vision:

We want more journeys to be made by bike, foot or public transport.

campaign for safer streets

We believe that every child has the right to walk, cycle or scoot to school.
