Webinar for new active travel tool guidance

Active Travel

12 June 2020

The DFT has released new  user guidance for its updated active mode appraisal toolkit (AMAT), that is used to predict  the impacts of active travel schemes, ranging from capital investments to behaviour change programmes.

AMAT quantifies a range of potential benefits from active travel including:

  • health improvements from increased levels of physical activity 
  • transport decarbonisation impacts
  • air quality and climate benefits associated with modal shift

Jeremy Clarke, the DfT’s economic advisor for active and accessible travel, said: “I’m confident this will really help local stakeholders to make the case for future spending on active travel.”

A webinar to launch the guidance, developed by consultant WSP, is being held on Wednesday 24 June from 10.30-11.45.
