Transport Strategy 2016-2021
Our Transport Strategy 2016-2021 sets out how we are
encouraging our staff, students and visitors to travel to our University
sustainably. We have had a Transport Strategy since 2002 and have been
monitoring how our staff and students travel to University since 2000 in annual
Travel to Uni surveys. From 2011 we have been monitoring CO2 emissions from our
travel and will be setting targets to reduce it.
