Commuting to Campus

The impact of travel to and from the campus is a key environmental issue facing all of us. We need your help and support in tackling this.

Lancaster University's Travel Plan is a major initiative, which aims to do just that. The Travel Plan increases the travel choice of students, staff and visitors while significantly reducing our carbon footprint. The current Travel Plan is available here. A key part of the Travel Plan is the car parking policy that supports it.
