Active travel to school

Through our travel behaviour change for schools services we work with teachers, parents and governors to help get more people active on the journey to and from school.

We also work with communities to redesign the streets around the school to help more people travel actively.

The historic city of York has always attracted a higher than average number of people on bicycles, but car travel and traffic congestion continues to rise.

Parents driving the school run are a major part of the problem. Since 2009 iTravel York has employed us to work with 40 schools throughout the city to help get more children and parents cycling and walking their daily journeys.
