Encouraging residents to spring clean their journey

Published: 28/02/20


We are asking people across south Essex to swap their car for a different way of travelling in March as part of our ‘Spring Clean Your Journey’ challenge.

Launching next month, the travel challenge gives residents the opportunity to win a £250 prize for completing just one journey on a bus, train, bike or on foot which they would have normally travelled by car.

The challenge encourages residents to think about how they can give their journey to work, university, college or job interviews a spring clean.

Once you’ve completed your journey, you need to use the hashtag #SpringCleanJourney to be entered into the prize draw. Alternatively, you can tell us you’ve taken part in the challenge by sending an email about your journey to hello@forwardmotionsouthessex.co.uk.

The campaign will feature on buses and billboards across the South Essex region, throughout March.

Cllr Ron Woodley, chair of the South Essex Active Travel Sponsoring Board, commented:

“With Spring just around the corner, we’re encouraging people to turn over a new leaf and use a greener travel method in March, to help reduce emissions across the south Essex area. Buses, trains and cycling all produce fewer emissions per passenger than a car, and, of course, walking cuts emissions out completely.

“As well as helping the environment, swapping the car for a different way of travelling this month can help people save money and feel refreshed, both physically and mentally. And, not forgetting, taking part in our challenge also means you’re in with a chance of winning a £250 prize.”

To help people spring clean their journeys, ForwardMotion’s trained travel advisers will be on hand throughout March, ready to provide free, tailored advice about how you can swap the car for a cleaner way of travelling. Get in touch by emailing: hello@forwardmotionsouthessex.co.uk or pick up the phone and call 01702 212727.
