Sustainable Travel

Sustainable Travel

Sustainable travel is not only good for the environment, but also good for our health. Making your journeys more active is a great way to get some exercise and save money. In addition, research by King's has shown cyclists and pedestrians inhale less pollution than those travelling in vehicles, so air pollution should not scare you off. 

We've collated some tips about how to reduce the environmental impact of your travelling, making it more sustainable. This should hopefully help you live a healthier life and save money, as well as helping other people and the planet. 

Travel Tips:

Telecommuting

If you can telecommute to a conference or meeting you would otherwise travel for, your reduced impact is immense.

King's Cycle-to-Work Scheme

King's has a cycle-to-work scheme that makes choosing the bicycle much easier. King's also has a Bicycle Users Group that offers support and advice to cyclists. 1 in 4 London commutes now take place by bicycle. 

16-25 Railcard

If you are under 25, you are eligible for the 16-25 railcard. It can save you 1/3 of off peak tube travel alone. 

Take the stairs instead of the lift. 

Whenever you can, try to take the stairs instead of the lift. A few trips in a lift each day could account for over 100kg of COemissions in a year. Perhaps more importantly, there are undeniable health benegits to choosing the steps.
