Green Travel

Our Green Travel Plan expresses our commitment to developing provision for pedestrians, cyclists and for multi-modal transportation including public transport.  

The Key Objectives of this Travel Plan are to:

  • reduce the environmental impact of travel associated with both Institutions;

  • reduce parking congestion on campus and in the locality during term-time;

  • improve the options available for travel to both campuses;

  • improve the safety and accessibility of travel within and to both campuses.

Measures aimed at addressing these objectives between 2016-2021 are laid out within the Plan and include improving public transport provision, improved facilities for cycling and walking, improved car park management, and the ongoing examination of parking restrictions and charging.  Both Institutions encourage students, staff and visitors to consider using alternative methods of transport to help reduce the impact of car travel on the environment. By working in close partnership with Cornwall Council and other strategic partners, both Institutions endeavour to continue developing and improving the range of travel options available to members of the Universities, as well as visitors. Detailed information on specific modes of transport available to staff and students can be found within this website.
