Active and sustainable travel means making journeys by healthier, more environmentally-friendly modes, such as walking, cycling, or public transport.
The best action we can take to reduce air pollution and improve our physical and mental health is to get active and leave our car at home.
Coronavirus and active travel
For anyone who still needs to travel to work, it is a good time to think about using active travel measures. Can you walk or cycle and avoid public transport? It will get you outside and count towards your physical activity for the day. As there will be fewer cars on the road, it should be more pleasant. Whether walking or cycling it is important to remember to adhere to the 2 metres (6ft) social distancing rule.
