Transport

Driving in our cars is one of the biggest contributors to CO2 emissions in this country. In a rural area such as North Kesteven, many of us rely on our cars to get about on a day-to-day basis but did you know that a quarter of all journeys made by cars in the UK are less than 2 miles. If we use all of the different forms of transport available, like walking, cycling and public transport it would help reduce emissions as well as improve our health.
  • Using the carNationally the Act on CO2 campaign has launched 'drive 5 miles less a week'
  • Public transportThere is public transport available across the District but as a large and rural area this is very limited in some areas.
  • Walking and cyclingAs a nation we are walking 20% less than we did a decade ago
