Sustainable transport

More than 95% of visitors to the New Forest National Park arrive by car.

We aim to encourage more people to use public transport when travelling around the Forest to reduce their impact on the area.

Over recent years we have done this through:

  • Investing more than a million pounds in improving infrastructure for cyclists and walkers, supporting cycle hire businesses and promoting sustainable transport
  • Running the New Forest Tour which carries tens of thousands of people around the National Park each summer
  • Providing grants to businesses and groups looking to help people travel more sustainably
  • Supporting public bus services that run through the Forest.

For details of sustainable transport projects we have funded, use the links below.
