How YOU Travel

Overview

PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL CHOICES AT THE UNIVERSITY

How You Travel includes travel guides for City Centre, Queen's Park, Thornton and Warrington Campuses. 

Initiative Details

The current travel plan seeks to provide a comprehensive strategy for the University in its entirety, for the period 2015 - 2020. It includes University-wide objectives and targets, an action plan for delivery of a range of measures and details the monitoring mechanisms that will be put in place to chart our progress. The successful delivery of the travel plan will ensure that we are not only ‘doing our bit’ for our environment by reducing vehicular emissions and improving localised congestion, we are also maximising the accessibility of our Campuses / buildings for the University community as a whole both now, and in the future.

Greenway Gate - Parkgate Rd Campus

Our Greenway Gate allows access to the University directly from the Greenway, at the back of Parkgate Rd Campus, making the journey for cyclists and walkers a lot easier and safer. The gateway, officially opened on Wednesday 12 November by Alice Irvine, Sustrans Area Manager, was funded by the Local Sustainable Transport Fund. The gate is located at the back of the overflow car park at the nearest point of access to the Greenway. The gate is accessible using your University pass between 7am - 7pm daily. Please familiarise with Sustrans code of conduct for shared-use paths and if you have any technical issues with the gate please report via Facilities Helpdesk.

Grosvenor Bike Store on Parkgate Rd Campus provides secure, two-tier parking and coin operated lockers. Please lock your bike inside the store. You will need your University pass to access the store.

Chester City Car Club membership opens the door to young drivers looking to hit the open road without the cost and hassle of owning a vehicle. You can forget about having to fork out for huge insurance premiums, servicing, MOTs, tax and the nightmare of city centre parking as all this is covered in City Car Club membership.

Students aged 19 or over can join City Car Club for just £6 a month and get access to cars conveniently located in designated parking bays across Chester plus hundreds more in 16 other cities in the UK. You only ever pay for the time you use their vehicles and rental rates start as low as £5.95 an hour plus 23p per mile travelled. City Car Club even picks up the bill for fuel and insurance.

Is City Car Club just for young drivers?

No, everyone is welcome to use City Car Club just as long as you are 19 or over, have held a full licence for at least a year and have no more than 6 points.

International students are also welcome providing your licence is valid within the UK. All City Car Club requires is a copy of your licence and passport for our records.
