Sustainable transport

Staff and students use transport networks to get to your school or college. These can have the greatest impact on your community – and on the earth. The construction industry can help to make transport more sustainable. That is, to reduce the negative impacts that it has on our environment. One way is to encourage people to use public transport.

Why might this be better for:

Imagine that you are able to change public transport in your community:

  • Using a map of your community, show how you could improve public transport to and from your school or college.
  • Think about how you could add bus routes or lanes, or even new networks, like trams.
