Active Travel Hubs in Northern Ireland

An Active Travel Hub embedded in the heart of a community can help us to raise awareness of issues around how we travel. Find out more about our Active Travel Hub in East Belfast.

Northern Ireland is increasingly facing many challenges of congestion, air pollution, the climate crisis, as well as obesity and mental health problems.

We can help tackle these issues by providing practical local support so that more people can become active by walking and cycling.  

Having an Active Travel Hub at the heart of the community encourages active travel and brings multiple benefits so that we and future generations can live in a healthier, greener and happier place.

Active Travel Hubs are located at the following locations:
