ACT TravelWise is a national scheme to encourage people to think about the impact that their daily journeys have on the environment, their community and on their own health.

In the West Midlands, we aim to:
  • promote sustainability
  • promote cycling and walking
  • help reduce local pollution
  • reduce road congestion
  • improve people's health
  • improve the local environment through cleaner air and lower noise levels
  • free up land which would otherwise be used for car parking
  • help reduce demand for parking.

Through this we hope to make the West Midlands a better, healthier place in which to live and work. Even making small changes to the number and type of car journeys, or the way you drive, can have a big impact on you and your environment.

Here in Birmingham, TravelWise operates a number of schemes to help you to travel more sustainably:
