Travel and traffic advice and support

There are many benefits to reducing the use of cars for the school run and our top tips will help you achieve them.

School travel plan

A school travel plan is a written document, which helps pupils travel to school safely, healthily and sustainably.

For help, contact Southwark's Transport planning department.
