Learner Travel (Wales) Measure 2008

Section 11 – Sustainable modes of travel

41.Section 11 places a duty on a local authority and Welsh Ministers to promote sustainable modes of travel when exercising their functions under the Measure. This means that a local authority should consider sustainability when assessing learner travel needs under section 2(2). Sustainability must also be considered and promoted when travel arrangements are made by a local authority or Welsh Ministers. For example, this could mean encouraging learners to travel by bus rather than by car.

42.Subsection (2) defines ‘sustainable modes of travel’ as ones that the authority or the Welsh Ministers consider may improve the physical well-being of those who use them and/or the environmental well being of the whole or part of the authority’s area, or the whole or part of Wales (in the case of the Welsh Ministers).
