At the University of York we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and local community - this is reflected in a number of our key strategy documents, including our Carbon Management Plan, Sustainability Strategy and forthcoming University Strategy. One of the ways we aim to achieve this is to minimise the number of trips made to / from the University by car (alone), whether by students, staff or visitors. That’s where the 2015 - 2020 Travel Plan comes in; this is a package of bespoke measures, which seeks to build on our successes to date. It is tailored to the needs of our staff, students and visitors (where appropriate), aimed at promoting greener, cleaner travel choices and reducing reliance upon the car.
Having carried out a survey of staff and student travel habits on behalf of the University of York, TPS prepared this user friendly summary report as a way of communicating the findings across the organisation.
