Lots has happened since we published the first edition of the Active Travel Directory in 2020. Government continues its commitment to walking, wheeling and cycling and an updated Cycling & Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS2) reinforces ambitions to see 50% of all journeys in towns and cities walked, wheeled or cycled as the natural and convenient choice by 2030, supported with £2 billion of funding.

The publication of Gear Change in 2020 set out a vision to make England a great walking, wheeling and cycling nation, putting policy emphasis on better and safer streets for active modes. It stated that walking and cycling should be prioritised at the heart of decision-making, so empowering local authorities to embed active travel options in all transport policies.

The creation of Active Travel England will ensure that the highest design and planning standards are set and delivered, and will help local authorities to achieve the vision set out in Gear Change.

Despite all this, recent figures published by the Department for Transport have seen a drop in cycling levels since record peaks in 2020, although Transport for London has just published data showing that cycling and walking is now above pre-pandemic levels in London.

Howver, across the wider UK numerous projects have been rolled back or watered down in the face of controversy led by a small, but highly vocal, minority.

The challenges ahead are clear and often complicated, but support is available. This directory is a comprehensive reference that will help local authorities, and all those tasked with taking forward active travel schemes, to identify the resources they need for successful delivery.

The 2023 Active Travel Directory's 126 pages includes details of organisations that can support your active travel projects. These range from modellers to marketers, data analysts, public consultation experts, micro-mobility operators and designers and consultants. We hope that you find the directory useful and encourage you to share it with colleagues across local authority departments to supercharge your projects. Extra copies can be ordered, in print and digital formats, so please get in touch and let us know your requirements.
