Active travel: trends, policy and funding

This House of Commons Library Briefing has been produced to provide an overview of current approaches and policies.

Active travel means making journeys by physically active means, like walking or cycling.

The Cycling and Walking Investment strategy, published in 2017, is the government’s strategy to promote walking and cycling in England.

Given active travel is a devolved policy area, this briefing relates primarily to active travel policies in England.
