Sustainable modes of transport were promoted in Preston through a wide-scale personalised travel planning campaign.

Implementing sustainable mobility

The measure was implemented in order to support infrastructure-related CIVITAS projects, and as part of Lancashire’s TravelSmart project to contact 50,000 households in Lancashire.

General objectives were to:

  • facilitate a shift towards non-polluting/less-polluting transport modes by supplying personalised travel information and incentives; and
  • encourage people to replace car journeys with walking, cycling or using public transport.


Participating households were able to choose from a unique range of local travel information and other services, all designed to highlight the opportunities for walking, cycling and using public transport for day-to-day trips. Among these resources were local travel maps, and a pledge card, offering discounts at a range of local cycling and outdoor retailers.


Households were interviewed before and after the provision of specific information and advice in order to indicate changes in travel behaviour. The results showed a 10 percent reduction in car trips in Preston and an increase in the number of people cycling, walking and using public transportation.
