Sustainable school travel

The health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families in Oxfordshire is the leading priority within this strategy. We know that walking and cycling along with other methods of active travel (walking, wheeling, scooting, cycling, bus) can make a big difference to air quality, road safety and the health and wellbeing of children and young people, as well as the adults who travel with them.

To support these goals, we are developing a plan which will set out our vision and the principles that will underpin how we can work together to achieve this. The plan we are developing is the Sustainable School Travel Strategy. We would like to understand what will encourage people to make sustainable travel their preferred choice and how we can provide support to make this happen. From the information and feedback you provide, we will create an Oxfordshire County Council led action plan for improving sustainable travel to school and college.

Your feedback is important to us. Please complete our survey . This will help us to better understand the needs, aspirations, and practicalities of increasing levels of more sustainable school and college travel. The survey and further information can be found here.
