Sustainable travel sounds complicated, but it isn't really. Sustainable travel is any form of transport that keeps damage to our environment to a minimum.
Transport counts for around 25% of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions. Many scientists say the global temperature is getting warmer because we are putting too much carbon dioxide and other gases into the atmosphere.
Global warming will cause big changes to the weather around the world. These changes will harm the environment, wildlife and even human life.
By reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, we can help to solve global warming. Using sustainable travel is one really good way to reduce carbon emissions.
Network West Midlands is the name that connects all public transport in the West Midlands metropolitan area.
This includes Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Coventry, Walsall, Solihull and Wolverhampton. It clearly identifies the complete network of bus, rail and Metro services that are easily accessible to most people in the West Midlands.
You'll find the Network West Midlands logo at all bus stops, rail stations, bus stations and Metro stops. Wherever you see it, you'll find far better information on how to use buses, trains and Metro easier than ever before.
You'll find improved timetable information at bus stops and improved maps and journey information at all places where services meet, helping you switch from bus to bus, bus to train or bus to Metro with more confidence. The aim is to work towards creating a smoother, safer, more efficient and user-friendly system.
