Sustainable Travel

New to the University? Want to know how to get around Reading? Keen to try a different mode of transport? From this page you will be able to access all of the information about travel options to and around the University, as well as offers and tips to help make sustainable travel as easy and affordable as possible.

The information on this page has been structured around the carbon travel hierarchy, which structures travel methods in order of sustainability - from flying to no-carbon methods. The hierarchy acts as a helpful tool to consider the impact of travel decisions and consider any suitable alternatives.
Air Pollution has been recognised as one of the biggest environmental health risks facing humans. As well as reducing carbon emissions, travelling sustainably helps to improve air quality. The University has signed up as a Clean Air Day supporter and supports initiatives to help improve air quality. More information on air quality can be found at
