This month, users of public transport in Lincoln are being offered free travel mugs and bottles as part of a drive for sustainability in the city.
Access Lincoln is offering people an extra incentive for considering sustainable transport this May with anyone completing their online travel plan able to claim a free travel mug or water bottle.
The plan is designed to users save time and money, lead healthier lifestyles and protect the environment, by informing them of travel times, cost, emissions and calories burned for all modes of travel.
Alison Mackfall, Access Lincoln project co-ordinator, said: “Whether you’re journeying to work, college or school, or visiting the city for any other reason, our online travel planner can find the best way to get you there.
“Taking the bus, cycling or walking can often be the quickest, easiest and cheapest option for getting where you need to go.
“And it’s not only healthier than being sat in the car – it’s better for the environment too.
“Our travel planner will put together a tailored, step-by-step plan for your journey – and it’s free of charge.
“It will only take you a few minutes, and will likely save you time and money – it’s a win-win.”
Access Lincoln is a Lincolnshire County Council initiative supported by Lincoln BIG and funded by the Department of Transport.
