Sustrans Bike It


Sustrans helps hundreds of thousands of young people throughout the UK to travel actively and safely to school or to college.
We are working with Local Authorities, schools and teachers to increase active travel to school. Through our school's officer model we implement engaging and effective programmes designed to embed a culture of active travel amongst the entire school community.
Transforming the school run
The school run is a major source of congestion during the morning peak, with as many as one in four cars on the road taking children to school.
One quarter of primary schools are in areas that breach the legal limits for nitrogen dioxide, which stunts children's growth and increases risk of asthma and lung cancer.
Childhood obesity is at record levels while school transport budgets are facing an unprecedented squeeze.
Increasing levels of active travel offers a solution to all of these challenges.
Is your school part of our Travel2School project?
York has its own dedicated Active Travel officer from Sustrans who delivers the Travel2School project and works with schools across the City.
In partnership with schools, our officer helps young people travel actively and safely. The project supports children, staff and families to lead healthy, active lives and engage with them about the concept of ‘active travel’ (walking, cycling and scooting).
The impact of our work within a year, through a planned programme of activities providing information, resources and encouragement, can be enormous. Our officer continues to support the school beyond this period, as it increasingly takes the lead in activities.
