Sustainable travel

It's more environmentally friendly to travel by public transport than by car.

Here you can find links to useful sources of information on how to travel more sustainably, and also how to get active by walking or cycling.


Carbon Calculator

To find out the CO2 emissions of your own journey, why not try the Traffic Scotland carbon calculator?  The results from the calculator illustrate how your chosen mode of transport compares against others, including car, bus, train and motorbike.


Park and Ride options

For details on Park and Ride sites across Scotland, follow the link below to the Traffic Scotland listing of P&R locations.  You can also use our Journey Planner to find public transport journeys to and from your chosen Park and Ride site.


Car sharing

Car sharing (also known as ride-sharing, carpooling and lift-sharing) is a great way to help reduce local congestion, pollution and your own travel costs.  For details of organisations that can help arrange car sharing, follow the CarPlus link below:
