Many people have changed their travel behaviour due to the impact of Covid-19, but try to avoid the urge to jump in your car for every journey.
Switching to more sustainable ways of travelling, can have a massive positive impact.
Changing your travel behaviour, by reducing the number of single occupancy car journeys you make:
- could help save money
- reduces congestion
- is kinder for the environment
Shorter journeys can often be made on foot or by bicycle.

Extra support is available for residents in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Kirkby-in-Ashfield and Worksop
Travel planning support for residents in these target areas was planned for 2020 but was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak (Covid-19). An amended project is being rolled out in late summer / early Autumn 2021.
Those within the project area will receive information on how to take part in the post. The project will enable residents to apply for a limited number of three month bicycle, e-bike and Fitbit Activity Tracker loans.
