Description

Lowering your car use is one of the most effective ways to reduce your impact. This could mean making journeys by bicycle or bus, taking fewer car journeys, reducing the number of cars your household owns, or giving up your car entirely. The council is working with residents and businesses to improve transport in Bristol, especially alternative options to the car such as walking, cycling and taking public transport.

Going without a car could save around 2.4 tonnes of CO2 a year. Diesel cars in particular are sources of harmful air pollution, so reducing your car use will improve Bristol’s air quality and ultimately people’s health – including your own.

By choosing to walk or cycle, you’ll get fitter and improve your mental health at the same time.

By saving on fuel, tax, insurance and repairs, what could you spend your money on instead?
