Our work in Wales

Sustrans Cymru is leading the way when it comes to helping Wales become a nation where walking and cycling are the normal way of getting about for local journeys.  

We have a wealth of experience of developing community led solutions and working with schools, communities, workplaces to enable people to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper travel. 

Councils are currently mapping improvements and potential new routes in Wales and need your input: Are the routes mapped accurately? Have any useful or essential links been missed? 

People cycling on the national Cycle Network in Wales

The National Cycle Network in Wales is a series of traffic-free paths and quiet on-road cycling and walking routes, offering opportunities for everyday travel, discovery and play.

Explore our online map or plan your next adventure by browsing walking and cycling routes in Wales. We also have a selection of free leaflets and maps.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for inspiration for your next trip, to find out which routes make route of the month and for everyday commuting tips.

We work with schools throughout Wales, enabling more children to travel to school by bike, scooter or on foot. We provide training, information and support to pupils, teachers and parents. To find out more and to apply to join our schools programme visit this page.

Why not sign up to take part in our School Mark? A bespoke online resource that will guide you through the key steps to increase and sustain the number of pupils travelling to school actively.   

At Sustrans we believe well designed streets and public spaces can be places that encourage us to socialise, play and exercise. 

Our approach to placemaking starts with engaging communities to understand how people currently use public space where they live and what aspirations they have for using the space differently. Visit our placemaking page to find out more.

Wales leads the world with its Active Travel legislation. The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 has given Wales the opportunity to transform itself into a country where walking and cycling are normal ways of getting around for shorter journeys.

Making this opportunity a reality depends on investment and behaviour change. We believe that it makes sense to start the change with our children, to build in healthy lifestyles that will last them a lifetime.

We support employers across Wales to empower their employees to leave their cars at home and travel to work on foot, by bike, on public transport or car share.

Our Smarter Journeys to Work Toolkit can help you develop and implement a successful Travel Plan for your organisation.
