The three key pillars of our work in Northern Ireland are behaviour change, improving infrastructure, and influencing Government to create more liveable places for everyone.
We're working to ensure the Northern Ireland Assembly and local authorities deliver policies and projects that enable more people to walk, wheel and cycle to help reduce car dependency.
In 2023/24 we will also be working with Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford.
Increasing the number of children who regularly walk, cycle or scoot to school has numerous benefits.
Our Active School Travel Programme is an exciting initiative for schools who wish to see more of their pupils choosing an active and healthy journey to school.
Having an Active Travel Hub at the heart of the community enables us to provide practical local support so that more people can become active by walking and cycling.Active Travel Hubs in Belfast and Derry
Our annual Active Travel Challenge is now live and takes place throughout June 2023. Any individual or workplace can register for free.
In Northern Ireland, we support employers to encourage their employees to consider active travel in their daily routine.
