Travel Information

Walking

walk-iconYou can plan your walking route to our school/college/university easily using walkit.com or the free Walkit Network West Midlands App.  The site will tell you how long it will take you to walk, depending on your walking speed, how many calories you will burn as well as how much CO2 would have been produced had you travelled by motor vehicle.

Cycling

Another useful tool for cyclists is the free Bike Hub App, which turns your phone into a pocket sat nav including turn-by-turn navigation with voice instructions and vibrating alerts.  The App uses the same maps as Cyclestreets.net.

Public Transport

You can find out about the best value ticketing options for you and use the online journey planner at networkwestmidlands.com/planmyjourney.

To do your journey planning on the go you can use the free Netnav App where you can plan your trip and find out real time information about local departures.

Car Sharing

With the price of petrol and parking the way they are, it’s not surprising that motorists are looking for ways to cut costs.

Whether you’re staff or a student, car sharing provides an easy way to do just this, and as well as saving money, it’s also a great way to socialise too!
