Sustainable Travel to Schools Strategy (Draft)

The draft Sustainable Travel to School Strategy is targeted at those with both a professional and general interest in school travel in York.

Education is a hugely important part of a child’s development and being able to get to school is therefore just as significant.

Travelling to school sees over 23,000 children and young people making a morning and an evening journey each day in York. As a result of this, it's in the interests of the city, the school community and children and young people to use sustainable modes of travel wherever possible for a variety of reasons.

Our strategy examines these reasons and presents an action plan for how York will promote sustainable modes of travel and develop sustainable travel infrastructure.
