How to travel sustainably at Leeds Beckett University
Our Vice-Chancellor is a regular user of the staff shuttle bus. Having seen him a couple of times onboard we have asked him to write about his experience using it. Here is what he says.
21st June was National Clean Air Day. The growing event is a special day when people make a pledge to improve the air quality. Across the UK, many positive actions were taken to encourage taking steps towards making air cleaner.
Shout-out to all staff: spring is here and you can still borrow our bikes to commute between campuses. Our aim is to, of course, reduce single-car occupancy travel. Having the shuttle bus has helped a lot in tackling this issue but now things are getting greener.
Back in March, we undertook a university-wide travel survey targeting staff and students.
The chart below shows the proportion of students using each of the two shuttle services. A much larger proportion of students are using the Kirkstall Brewery service.
Travel Options Week was a real success and staff and students from different areas of the university came along. Several actors of the transport sector had stalls to talk about and promote their travel services. We hope that you have enjoyed it and that it has inspired you to think about your commute and about how you can make it more efficient.
