Make greener travel your New Year’s resolution

Try an alternative mode of transport in January and you can claim either a free re-usable coffee cup or mini bike lights!

Access Lincoln is asking people to pledge to leave the car at home for at least three journeys in January and use a more sustainable form of transport instead.

As an incentive, those making the pledge can claim a free re-usable coffee cup or mini bike lights.

Just drop into the Access Lincoln Hub at St Swithins House, 3-5 St Swithins Square, Lincoln LN2 1HA, anytime from Thursday 2 January and sign up by completing an online travel plan.

Alison Mackfall, Access Lincoln project co-ordinator, said: “This is one New Year’s resolution you’ll definitely be able to keep!

“All we’re asking people to do is make at least three of their journeys in January by walking, cycling or on the bus as opposed to taking the car.

“Sustainable transport can often be the quickest, easiest and cheapest option, and it’s not only healthier than being sat in the car – it’s better for the environment too.

“And remember, you can use our free online travel planner to find out the best options for getting where you’re going.”
