A travel scheme in the Lake District has been announced that aims to encourage more people to use environmentally friendly transport when they visit the Lakes.
The plan aims to inspire visitors to change their behaviours and use public transport or bikes where they can.
The program includes nine interlocking projects including improved cycleways , more and better bus stops, more frequent bus services, a low emission car hire network, the expansion of an electric cycle network and better transport information. Councillor Tim Knowles said;
The program is costing £6.9 million and aims to save up to 11,000 tonnes of Co2 emissions by 2015 with continued reductions after that. it also aims to generate an additional £7million in revenue and create 100 jobs.
