3. Make a change
Start practising sustainable travel today! Use one of your regular journeys under 5 km and try to walk it or cycle it instead to see what difference it makes in time and fitness gained. Perhaps it doesn’t take as long as you thought or it could even take less time, but the benefits to you and your community are priceless. You can find further information over on our Kingley Grove Walking and Cycling pages about which amenities are local to you and within walking and cycling distances.
4. Investigate a cycle to work scheme
Find out if your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme like Cyclescheme or Free2Cycle. These schemes are set up to benefit employees by saving between 25-39% on the cost of a bicycle and cycling accessories. Payments for the equipment are conveniently deducted through your salary. You can find out more on the Cyclescheme website and invite your employer to join if they haven’t signed up already!
5. Sign up to car share
Sign up free to the Camshare.co.uk website. By sharing journeys you can save money on the cost of travelling by car. Cambridgeshire car share is an easy and great tool for searching and finding other local people to partner up with. With dozens of car sharing opportunities offered in the area, there is a good chance of finding a suitable journey. The average commuter can save up to £1,000 a year, so if you can’t find one car share that fits your needs, why not advertise your trip for others to join you and start saving on your driving.
