We're making it easier for you to incorporate cycling, running or walking into your journey and transform your commute into one that is healthier for yourself and the environment.
We know that many in our community may wish to find alternative means of transport to campus rather than relying solely on public transport. Wherever possible, we encourage and aim to support staff and students in making their transport to campus - and across London - more active.
It may not be possible to remove public transport entirely. However, through combining public transport with some element of active travel - whether it’s walking from a hub station or cycling part of the way - there are opportunities to find a way that is best for yourself, your health, and the environment.
