History in a nutshell
Sustrans was founded in Bristol in 1977. The first route was the Bristol and Bath Railway Path, a 17-mile traffic-free trail along a disused railway. The Network was officially created in 1995 with a grant from the newly-created National Lottery. Its length and popularity have grown enormously. It now carries over a million walking and cycling journeys daily and passes within a mile of 57% of the population.
