Hampshire's 'School Travel Plans' logo


School Travel Plans and the Safer Routes to Schools Programme link with many other initiatives and programmes both within Hampshire County Council and Nationally. The Healthy Schools Programme links to School Travel Plans through both the Environment and Safety modules. Schools working with the School Landscape Group at Hampshire might also consider developing a School Travel Plan to tie-in with the work they are doing on their school grounds. 

There are many websites that are relevant to School Travel Plans. The links below include Hampshire's Workplace Travel Plans site aimed at businesses in Hampshire who wish to develop a travel plan. There is also a link to The Hampshire Local Transport Plan (LTP) which sets out the County Council's proposals and programmes for expenditure on transport over the next five years.
