We're in Stockton-on-Tees until October 2018
We're giving residents in Stockton-on-Tees free advice to help them travel greener, healthier and cheaper in the Tees Valley.
Let’s Go Tees Valley travel advisors are visiting homes across the borough until October with useful information on car-free travel, including bus services, rail travel as well as walking and cycling maps.
Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said: “This is great news for residents. Whether you’re in work, looking for a new job, starting college or finding your way around a new area – the more options you’re aware of, the greater travel flexibility you have.
“The travel advisors will be able to help our residents get around the Borough in cheaper, greener and healthier ways than before thanks to their expert advice and information.”
The travel advisors will direct residents to free services like those provided by The active travel Hub on the high street, which provides advice and information about cycling and walking in the borough as well as free secure bike storage, bike MOTs, weekly confidence rides and maintenance courses.
They will also make regular visits to Thornaby, Stockton and Billingham Jobcentres for drop-in sessions and are running a Commuter Challenge with workplaces in Stockton while they are in the borough.
“This is great opportunity for residents and people working in Stockton to travel healthier and cheaper by leaving their cars at home for local journeys as well as to reduce pressure on car-parking for businesses.” Says Alex Kay from Let’s Go Tees Valley, “We have some major employers in Tees Valley involved with the challenge.”
