Explore the Lake District without a gas-guzzler, visitors told
VISITORS to England’s largest national park are being enouraged to help protect its famous fells and lakes by using green forms of transport.
The GOLakes Travel programme is a four-year £6.9 million scheme which aims to improve travel infrastructure such as cycelways and more bus services and a low emission car hire network.
And on World Car Free Day on September 22, it is asking people to leave their gass guzzlers at the accomodation they are staying at and hop on a bus or a bike instead.
Councillor Tim Knowles, Transport and Environment portfolio holder for Cumbria County Council, said: “The Lake District is a very special place for very many people and we want to make sure it stays that way in the future.”
