TRAVEL ACTION PLAN
As part of an ongoing project to encourage more parents to leave their car at home and choose a more sustainable active travel method of bringing their children to school, Alec Broome, Sports Development Officer, who works for the Isle of Wight Council Sports Unit, would like your assistance. He would like to gather some information about your travel to school by asking you to complete a short survey of 10 questions which will take 3-5 minutes. The survey is designed to establish the reasons parents choose the travel methods they do.
