Travelwise is a national campaign that encourages people to cut down on their car journeys and use sustainable transport.In West Sussex we aim to make other modes of transport, such as cycling, walking, public transport, motorcycling and car sharing, a real alternative to the car.At the heart of Travelwise is the belief that individuals can make small lifestyle changes that collectively make a difference; that everyone can be part of the solution and not the problem.
