Transport for London (TfL) is asking people to think about walking rather than taking the car on short journeys, as it launches its first-ever walking campaign.
Research shows that half of all car journeys in outer London are less than two kilometers—a distance that can be easily walked by most people in 25 minutes.
The Mayor of London is committed to making London one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in the world. The Mayor and TfL are investing a record £126 million (US$252 million over the next three years to further improve conditions for people on foot.
Encouraging more sustainable forms of travelling is also part of the Mayor’s Climate Change Action Plan for London.
