Ms Buck

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to fund travel awareness campaigns(a) this year and (b) in future years. [67538]

Mr. Jamieson

This year we are supporting the "Walk to School", "Bike Week" and "In town, without my car" campaigns and are considering further promotion of "traveline", the public transport information service. We are also providing practical support for other sustainable travel initiatives including funding local authority school and work place travel plan co-ordinators, free consultancy advice for schools and organisations wanting to develop travel plans, regional cycling co-ordinators, and cycling projects through the Cycling Projects Fund. We shall shortly be inviting local authorities to bid for funding to run personalised travel planning demonstration projects. Some of these projects will stretch over several years, others are still under development.
