Greener Travel in Chelmsford
The UK is aiming to have 80% less carbon emissions by 2050. Traffic, especially idling vehicles, is a big cause of carbon emissions, so it’s important to cut down on congestion. You can help by using public transport or cycling whenever you can, and we can help by making it as easy as possible to use greener transport
We’re investing in public transport. A number of bus lanes now exist throughout the city centre. They link two Park & Ride stations (Sandon and Chelmer Valley) with popular drop-off points in the city. This means less traffic finds its way into the centre, meaning less air pollution and congestion. There is also a shuttle service to Broomfield Hospital from the Chelmer Valley Park & Ride.
We also take great care and pride in keeping the footpaths and cycle lanes across Chelmsford are clean and safe. Take a look at this map to see the various on- and off-road bike lanes around Chelmsford.
Chelmsford also has a well-connected train station that allows travel into London in under 30 minutes, as well as to Braintree, Clacton-on-Sea, Colchester, Ipswich and Norwich.
