School Travel Plans
Benefits for schools with an accredited School Travel Plan
Transport for London (TfL) Cycle Parking Scheme
TfL has an ongoing project providing free cycle and scooter parking for schools with an accredited School Travel Plan. New submission dates for 2016 will be published in due course.
Schools that completed an approved Travel Plan by March 2010 received a grant to spend on capital works within their school grounds.
For schools that identify the need for Highway Improvements around their school, we will bid for additional funding to investigate and implement appropriate measures. Highways improvements can include:
- Crossing facilities
- Traffic calming
- School signage
When a new school is being planned or an existing school is to be expanded, it will usually be a condition of planning permission that the school should write and implement a school travel plan, meeting the criteria for Bronze accreditation.
An effective school travel plan can mitigate concerns about the impact of school run traffic on the local area.
