We want more people to use sustainable transport because it supports healthy lifestyles, helps reduce air pollution, road casualties, carbon emissions and road congestion.

The Council's Local Transport Plan "Connecting Cornwall: 2030" published in 2011 sets out clear policies on reducing car use and encouraging use of more sustainable forms of transport up to 2030.

Cornwall Council is also responding to these issues by working with employers, schools, colleges and universities in developing travel plans, promoting car sharing and encouraging active travel. The Council also has its own corporate travel plan as well as site specific travel plans for some of its offices.
