Buses, Trains and Trams

Travelling by bus, train, tube or tram may be an everyday activity for some children but for many it isn’t... don’t let them miss out on these experiences… teaching them now will help them become confident, independent travellers when older

If there are no trams or underground trains where you live, it’s a good excuse for an exciting city trip, and of course take the train to get there!  If your child is leaving Primary School, have a practice run of the trip to school actively or by other forms of public transport, before they start secondary school. What a great start to travelling independently and feeling grown up!

Bus, tram or train travel are the most eco-friendly options for longer journeys and these trips will often involve active travel too – a walk at either end.
