My Journey travel advisers help local households reduce their carbon footprints
11:00am Saturday 31st May 2014 in News
A TEAM of My Journey travel advisers will be working with households in three areas of Andover this summer, providing information about alternative ways to make day to day journeys.
Residents living in more than 3,200 households in the Millway, Harroway and Charlton areas of the town will have the chance to talk to advisers about the different transport options available, such as bus, bicycle or walking.
Each resident will receive a tailored travel pack to suit their needs.
These will focus on how they can integrate cycling, walking and public transport into their daily routines and help cut their petrol bills, reduce their carbon footprint, improve their health or avoid congestion in their neighbourhood.
The travel packs, available in both digital and paper formats, include free maps, timetables and fare information showing how best to get around Andover on foot, by bicycle, or using public transport, as well as taster tickets for local bus services to encourage people to try the bus.
There are also opportunities to try cycling, with the chance to borrow a bike for five weeks.
Everyone who takes up this offer will be entered into a draw to win a £250 voucher towards the cost of a new bike.
There’s also free cycle training to those who haven’t been on a bike in a while to help build confidence and polish up their cycling skills.
During the programme, the team of travel advisers will also be at local events such as Andover Carnival on 20 July, providing advice on getting around Andover.
