Although travelling sustainably all the time would be nice, we understand that some journeys are only practical if made by car. Travel planning is not an anti-car campaign. It is there to promote travel choices so that unnecessary car trips are minimised and congestion is reduced for those trips where a car is the only option. Here, we have included links for journey planning and traffic updates so that you can chose the most efficient route to get wherever you are going!

If you travel to work on your own, car sharing is a great way to cut your costs and get some company for your journey. Liftshare is a national organisation to help you to find people doing the same or a similar route as you. Just go to the West Sussex Carshare site, log in and let the site find you a suitable travelling companion.

Even when driving your car there are steps you can take to improve the efficiency of your journey. Smart driving or ‘eco driving’ can improve the environmental performance of your car and save you up to £220 a year in petrol and diesel.
Here are some links for information on how to be an ‘eco driver’.
