A school travel plan is a living document that sets out a number of practical ways to help reduce the amount of car trips made to a school, encourage more use of public transport, walking, cycling and scooting and to improve safety on the school journey.

The travel plan aims to raise awareness among pupils and parents of the harmful effects of increasing car use on children's health, safety and independence. It highlights the implications of travel choice and the benefits of encouraging more sustainable travel to school.
