Challenge to travel cheaper and greener

PEOPLE and businesses in East Sussex are being urged to choose cheaper, easier and healthier ways of travelling as part of a month-long initiative.

The TravelChoice Challenge, which runs throughout June, will encourage employees to cycle, walk, use public transport or car share to travel to and from work or to get around for business.

Businesses and their employees will be invited to compete in group and personal challenges as part of the initiative, launched by sustainable transport charity Sustrans.

The challenge, which is being supported by East Sussex County Council, is aimed at reducing congestion to support the local economy and encouraging more active travel for short, everyday journeys.

Cllr Carl Maynard, county council lead member for transport and environment, said: “It’s in all our interests to encourage people to choose walking, cycling and public transport, which has benefits for the local economy, health and wellbeing and the environment.”
