About Swindon Travel Choices
Swindon Travel Choices is all about making travel simple. Simple to find information, simple to understand, simple to use. We want to help you find ways to travel that save you time or money, and improve your wellbeing and local environment.
We were originally funded as part of Swindon Borough Council’s successful bid for money from central government as part of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund 2011 – 2017. During that time we set up the branding, website, numerous maps, guides, magazines and resources for residents, workplaces and schools. We knocked on thousands of doors in East and West Swindon to deliver personalised advice and offers, and we set up the Swindon car club with Co-wheels and funded the Flyer routes and an additional cycle park in Swindon Town Centre. We offered local employers grants for sustainable travel projects, and ran roadshows and events in the workplace.
We continued to promote the Swindon Travel Choices brand beyond 2017, and in 2021 revamped the website as part of the Department for Transport’s Active Travel Fund.
