Our Mission

We're on a mission to make transport in the UK more sustainable. We help people and organisations to meet their travel needs in ways that support community well-being, protect and enhance the environment and improve public health.

We're focused on building expertise and experience in travel behaviour change and transport demand management - by providing training and events, tools and resources, marketing support and collaborative partnerships.

We support UK organisations of all sizes seeking to shift away from single-occupancy car use and increase the uptake of walking, cycling, public transport and shared transport.

Our History

Act TravelWise was formed in 2008 from a merger of The Association for Commuter Transport (ACT) and the National TravelWise Association (NTWA). Both organisations had been working to promote travel behaviour change since the mid-1990s. Ten years after the merger, we are seeking to become a charitable company to reflect our transition from a not-for-profit professional body to a company focused on the public benefits of implementing sustainable travel initiatives, campaigns and related advocacy work.
