What is sustainable travel?

In order to reduce single occupancy car commuting, the University of Exeter promotes sustainable transport such as commuting on foot, by bike, by bus/coach, by rail or by car sharing. You are encouraged to follow the sustainable travel hierarchy when travelling, whether it is part of your daily commute, for a business/study trip or for leisure.


How will I make a positive impact by travelling sustainably?

2. Health and Wellbeing

Active transport is an easy and convenient way to build physical activity into daily routines. Find out the positive health impacts of using sustainable travel for your regular journeys.

3. Financial

Travelling sustainably can save you a significant amount of money. Find out the money you could save on fuel by using sustainable travel for your regular journeys and then add on the cost of what you would pay in parking permits / pay & display tickets.
