Transport accounts for a quarter of UK carbon emissions. More traffic means more congestion, more air pollution, and more climate changing gases.

The solution lies with greener, smarter alternatives to car use like buses, walking and cycling schemes to get kids to school.

Friends of the Earth is calling on government to roll out Smarter Travel Choices across the country. They will help reduce emissions and provide good value for money for taxpayers – helping to set us on the path to a low-carbon, prosperous future.
