If you live a little too far away to travel actively, why not make your car journey more sustainable?
There are lots of ways that you can make driving more environmentally friendly and cheaper!
Did you know?
- Doubling car occupancy from 1 to 2 people saves money, reduces congestion and pollution
- The average cost of running a car is approximately £128 per week…
- …and it's going up by around 10% each year when you consider depreciation, insurance and fuel
- It can cost between £400 and £2,000 per year to maintain one car parking space
Car sharing is a great alternative to you travelling alone and you could save tonnes of cash.
Register with one or two car sharing websites to find a car share match... you might be surprised at how many people live near you and are looking to share their journey.
If car sharing isn't for you, how about learning to drive more economically?
Smart driving courses typically involve one-on-one in-car training.
They focus on reducing fuel consumption in built-up areas where speeds are lower and highlight the importance of planning ahead and making better choices.
