Travel and transport

Cambridge has the highest cycle rates in the UK – one in five journeys around the city are made by bike. Although Cambridgeshire has its share of traffic headaches, there are some positives; Stagecoach’s fleet of buses run on 100 per cent bio fuel, the train service is better than many and car shares are available.

For the average person living in the UK, travel accounts for around 14 per cent of their annual carbon footprint; if you would like to access more sustainable methods of getting about, here are some helpful websites.
