Getting around - Walking and Cycling
Walking is a leisure activity for many of us, but in urban areas it can be a quicker way of travelling than by car.
You can rely on your feet to get you where you want to be. Walking for short trips is a very wise move - healthy, ready to go when you are and free.
The Merseyside Local Transport Plan partners are working hard to make walking around Merseyside easy and enjoyable. This includes improvements to public spaces and pavements as well as signposts and better provision for disabled people. You can find out more about the plans by viewing the Pedestrian Strategy available to download from their website.
Cycling is often overlooked as a mode of transport, yet it is a fast, affordable, environmentally friendly and can also help to tackle traffic congestion. Whether for commuting, shopping trips, visiting friends and family, for leisure, a way to relax or to get fit, cycling is a great way to get around.
