Participation 2006

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Our week long programme of activities has climate change at the core and starts with the Travel Choice Festival! Promoting all modes of transport and highlighting Aylesburys Cycling Demonstration Town Status which has enabled us to invest in cycling within the town and really increase our numbers of cyclists.

Throughout the rest of European Mobility week we will look at each of the alternative modes of transport and how increased use will be a positive step to dealing with climate change.

Bus use
School Journeys
Accessibilty for those with disabilities
Car Share

We will show how single occupancy car use is causing long lasting damaging effects on the environment and that there are other viable modes which we can use instead.

We are involving our Bike It Schools and raising their awareness of making smart travel choices because of climate change
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
Car Free Day Road Closure at Wendover Road in Bourne End, with Street party at Claytons Combined School who have recently developed their school travel plan. We will be launching two new zebra crossing at this event.
