Road safety and sustainable travel education

A*STARS programme

We work with schools and other education settings to promote road safety education and active sustainable modes of travel. We want to reduce car use, especially during the school run, by encouraging you to walk, cycle, use public transport or car share. This will help you to:

  • reduce your carbon footprint
  • improve the health of you and your children

Find out more and see if your child’s school is registered on the A*STARS website or email us with any enquiries.
