Since 2017, as part of a Department for Transport local authority funding competition, the Isle of Wight Council has been delivering the £1.8m ‘Transforming Travel on the Isle of Wight: Transition to Transformation’ programme.
The Isle of Wight Council and its partners are delivering the Transforming Travel programme between April 2017 and July
2021. The programme is delivering a range of initiatives to enable and encourage local residents and visitors to travel around the Island sustainably – by walking, cycling, car sharing and using public transport more. The 19 projects being delivered are grouped into three thematic workstreams:
1: Access to Visitor Experiences – targeting visitors
travelling for leisure; embedding active travel into visitor experiences and growing the visitor economy.
2: Access to Employment, Training & Skills – targeting jobseekers and people commuting to work and training;
normalising walking and cycling and transforming access
3: Access to Education & Active Communities – targeting pupils and students travelling to education, and local
residents; improving the health and wellbeing of young people and families through more active travel.
This report highlights the key findings of these projects for the third and final year of the Access Fund Programme.
