Behaviour Change

Sustrans’ Behaviour Change programme supports young people and communities to walk, wheel and cycle for everyday journeys.

Supported by Transport Scotland, we work with project partners, supporters and volunteers.

Our work spans multiple projects, including education and young people and I Bike.

The I Bike project aims to transform the school run by empowering children, parents and teachers to travel actively, safely and confidently to school.

Temporary School Streets fund

We’re making £200,000 available through Places for Everyone in order to deliver temporary School Streets interventions.

A ‘School Street’ is what we call it when you restrict access to certain types of vehicles to make the road outside your school a walking, wheeling, and cycling zone. There are exceptions for blue badge holders and access for residents. You might also add things, like planters and play features, to change the way people use the street.

This limited fund is available on a first come first served basis and is open to schools, local authorities and parent councils working in partnership with relevant local authority departments.

Individual grants will be no more than £30,000, though we will consider context and project specific evidence when evaluating costs. If you’re eligible and have a Schools Streets project in mind to deliver, submit an application.

Applications are open all year round and assessed at two to three selection panels across the year.
