Changing the way your students travel could boost their academic performance. We can work with you to encourage your students to think differently and swap the car for a journey made by foot, bike, bus or train.
Students often arrive late and feel stressed if they have been stuck in traffic or struggled to find a car parking space. By encouraging them to ditch the car, you’ll be helping improve their mental and physical health. Students who use active travel arrive at lectures and classes more alert and focused compared to those who travel by car. Studies have also shown that regular exercise can contribute to growth of the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for storing information. So, your students will be smarter and healthier!
ForwardMotion provides a wide range of services designed to help universities, colleges and schools.

Your institution may also be eligible for free cycle storage facilities.
ForwardMotion’s services don’t cost a lot or require significant amounts of time and effort from you. Let us know what we can do to help, and we’ll do the rest.
