Accessible for all

Access for all – campaigning for better transport to and around National Parks

If National Parks are going to remain some of our most beautiful landscapes for the future, we need to think about how we get around them in an environmentally friendly way. To do this we’re campaigning for more buses to, from and around National Parks.

It's time to make sure everyone can visit our National Parks - blog from Ruth Bradshaw

Increased sustainable transport makes a difference:

Improved access means those who don’t have a driving licence or a car will be able to get around and visit National Parks.

Social and health benefits by encouraging people to ditch the car and use more sustainable transport.

Boost rural economies because people using buses means more money for local communities. Buses generate between £2 and £2.50 in benefits to local communities for every £1 of local authority spend.

Protecting precious landscapes and wildlife by reducing our carbon footprint from fewer cars on the roads as well as improving air quality, reducing congestion and less traffic noise.

What are we doing?

We want to make sure there is the provision of sustainable transport in National Parks. We have produced a new report to highlight the issues and solutions, now we are asking Governments and National Park Authorities to step up to provide more sustainable transport options in the Parks.
