When your children are travelling to school, there are often other options to taking the car.
Travel Smart is a county-wide campaign which works with schools to help all school-users enjoy safe journeys using sustainable transport choices. The campaign assists schools in producing maps showing journey options - such as this example from Ladycross Infant School. All local education authority schools in Erewash are entitled to take part in 'Travel Smart Week' to showcase and encourage all forms of active and sustainable school travel - it takes place annually in May and October and for details visit the website.
In addition, the Scooter Smart Scheme encourages journeys by scooter, and provides scooter storage funding - see here for details.
