TRAVEL TO WORK
TRAVEL TO SCHOOL
If you do need to drive, there are a few decisions you can make to help reduce the negative impacts of car travel, and can save you money, too.
Driving contributes to high traffic volumes and has a negative impact on air quality and the environment, and affects the overall appeal of the area. Before you set out, why not check if you could make your journey by public transport using the West Yorkshire Metro journey planner?
Are there more environmentally-friendly ways to use a car?
Car sharing schemes
If you usually drive you can decrease your impact on the environment and traffic by offering a lift to people who make a journey which is on the same route as yours, or by accepting a lift from someone. Rather than two or more cars making the same journey, drivers can travel together in a single car. You will also save money on parking, fuel and vehicle wear and tear. So whether you’d like to be the driver or the passenger, visit the West Yorkshire Car Share website where you can sign up and find someone to share with. You could also find out if your employer runs a car share scheme.
