Northumberland County Council’s Go Smarter team promotes and supports all types of sustainable travel in the county, whether that’s by working with local employers and bus companies to run a bus service to key employment areas, or by encouraging school pupils to get active by walking or cycling to school. 

The team also works one to one with job seekers to help plan routes to their new job, offers free public transport tickets to those starting new employment and a scooter loan scheme for people who can’t get to their new job on public transport.

For those who want to cycle, there have been improvements to cycle routes, along with bike maintenance and cycling skills sessions and bike loan schemes.
