Active Travel Guidance


Sports clubs have a lot to gain from promoting walking and cycling routes and installing suitable assets such as cycle locking facilities, in particular a healthier fan-base and more active workforce and a reduction in noise pollution and improve air quality around sports venues.

Healthy Stadia’s Active Travel Guidance will help representatives from sports stadia involved in facilities management, operations and communications to work with local partners to develop and promote an active travel plan as part of an overall travel strategy.

The document contains step-by-step support, a template active travel plan and a host of links to expert resources for further information. Other key issues covered in the document include:

  • Operational and health benefits for sports venues in developing an active travel plan
  • Developing and communicating walking and cycling routes to sports stadia
  • Installing cycle locking facilities and signposting their location
  • Promotion of active travel through club communications channels
  • Encouraging walking and cycling amongst fans, local communities and staff
