Benefits of Active Travel: 

Walking and Cycling along with other forms of physical activity can promote good physical and mental health and help children start the school day focused and alert.

Travelling to and from school by active forms can also reduce traffic congestion and improve the air quality around the school site.

Adults can also benefit the same way as children and help improve concentration at work as well as improve overall fitness and well-being.
