If everyone can change 1 in 10 of their journeys we will all notice a difference on the road.
Congestion is having a negative impact on how we live and work - if we do nothing it will get even worse.
We want to offer real travel choices that meets both rural and urban needs for all sectors of the population.
The four councils have combined to produce a joint transport plan for the years 2011-2026 - read it here.
|To make a difference any one scheme has to attract or change just 10 % of people's travelling habits. No one scheme will work for everyone.|
Travel+ is the badge we are giving to all the transport improvements in the West of England. You will see the name and logo appearing on vehicles, on information leaflets and wherever work is being done to improve the transport options for people.

If a scheme works for some people, it works for you, as it means less traffic overall.
The difference between ‘term time’ and ‘school holiday’ traffic is about 10-15%.
We need to provide a real alternative to the car, in addition to cycling or walking.
A quarter of journeys made every day by car are less than two miles.
We need to provide rapid, reliable, frequent and punctual alternative forms of transport to the car, for both long and short journeys, reducing congestion so that traffic can flow again, allowing drivers to go about their business.
We want to ensure that alternatives to the car are a realistic first choice for the majority of trips, both long and short.
