One of the key aims of our sustainable travel plan is to provide an environment that encourages students and staff to travel by alternative means of transport with less dependency on the car.
Our Uxbridge campus is well served by local buses and is only a mile from Uxbridge town centre and the Metropolitan/Piccadilly line station serving central London.
Main line railway services run from West Drayton station (approximately 2 miles from our campus on a direct bus route) and West Ruislip. The campus is also on a recommended cycle route. Brunel University London is close to Heathrow airport, is served by UNderground and Railway Links, and has excellent local bus services. Our campus has secure cycle storage facilities and is approximately a 20 minute walk from Uxbridge town centre.
Brunel Travel Plan
We have formally registered our interest to participate in the “Work Place Travel Planning Site Specific Advice Scheme" (SSA Programme) and have signed a Partnership Pledge Form to assist TfL in producing a Work Place Travel Plan which sets out a range of measures and initiatives to promote sustainable travel choices and options relevant for the purposes of Brunel University London. This work place Travel Plan has since received 'Gold Status', awarded by WestTrans in recognition of reaching the majority of agreed targets.
Whilst the Work Place Travel Plan is not now monitored by WestTrans, we remain committed to reducing our carbon footprint further by continuing to develop new schemes to reduce petrol car use. In this context, we have now introduced electric charging pods for use by Brunel and the wider community.
After winning a bid for extensive funding from Santander UK, we are delighted to be delivering a cycle hire scheme launching in March, 2019. Our scheme extends to the Uxbridge town centre and Hillingdon Hospital and also to the wider community.
Green Travel - long term goals
We are all aware that we need to reduce our own carbon footprint including recycling our waste and our individual demand on energy so why not think about ditching the car and look at alternative ways to travel. Brunel University London is close to Heathrow airport, is served by Underground and rail links, and has excellent local bus services. Our campus has secure cycle storage facilities and is approximately a 20 minute walk from Uxbridge town centre.
