Sustrans makes smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable. We are a leading United Kingdom charity enabling people to travel by foot, bike and public transport for more of the journeys that we make every day. We work with families, communities, policy-makers and partner organisations across the four nations of the UK so that people are able to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper ways of travelling, with better places and spaces to move through and live in.
Sustrans collaborates with Polis member authorities in the UK on practical measures to promote healthy and sustainable travel choice, and with the Polis Brussels team on input to policy. A central concern for us, at EU, UK, national and local level, is to encourage more cross-governmental partnership working to develop policies and strategies which address transport, climate, public health and quality of life.
