School Travel Initiatives

The decline in walking and cycling among school children is contributing to lower levels of fitness, increasing obesity and severe health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. Cornwall Council provides advice and guidance on a number of school travel initiatives which can help promote and identify ways to encourage more walking, cycling and use of public transport to reduce car use.

We are working with Sustrans to deliver a funded programme promoting walking, cycling and public transport.

The funding enables 3 Sustrans Officers to work with educational establishments, workplaces and community groups in Bodmin, Truro and Redruth, supporting the usage of improved local infrastructure developed through the Department for Transport's Local Growth Fund.
