Travel plans

Travel plans encourage as many of us as possible to use sustainable transport to reduce congestion and improve air quality. Work places, schools, residential developments and places of worship use travel plans.  

Apart from the benefits such as improved health and a better corporate image, Transport for London can help with funding. They can help you with sustainable transport at your site to help you meet your targets. We are working with many schools, businesses and organisations in the borough to develop their travel plans.

School travel plans

We are working with schools to develop travel plans. These plans aim to increase the number of pupils and staff walking, cycling, car-sharing or using public transport to and from school.

We ask schools to find out about the travel patterns of pupils and staff, then set realistic targets to change these patterns.

We support these plans with road safety reviews of the areas near schools. These reviews identify the improvements we need to make, which include better pedestrian crossings, traffic calming, 20mph zones and school crossing patrols (‘lollipop men/ladies’).
