Active Mode Strategies

Around 40% of all trips in the UK are less than 2 miles and therefore walking and cycling could be valid modes, however, over 60% of these journeys are currently undertaken by motor vehicles.

The Pandemic has resulted in a significant increase in active mode use for these shorter journeys and there are significant infrastructure proposals being introduced (temporary and permanent) to try and maintain this level of use. However, there is significant scope for further infrastructure and promotional strategies to encourage greater us of walking and cycling and reduce the levels of motor vehicle use for these shorter journeys.
