Safer, greener, healthier school travel

We’re encouraging all Birmingham schools to join a major effort to increase levels of walking, cycling and other forms of greener travel by registering with Modeshift STARS.

Modeshift STARS is a national award scheme which offers support and rewards to schools for taking steps to promote safer, greener, healthier travel. By participating in the Modeshift STARS scheme your school will be able to produce a new national standard School Travel Plan with an achievable action plan.
