Cardifference launched

To coincide with Sustainability week at Cardiff University the Make a Cardifference pages on Cardiffdigs.co.uk has been launched. http://cardiffdigs.co.uk/cardifference.htm

The pages provide advice for students on sustainable travel with the explicit aim of encouraging students to not bring cars into Cardiff and use sustainable methods of transport.
Make a cardifference – don’t bring a car into Cardiff.

Estimates suggest it costs over £2,200 per academic year to bring a car to Cardiff, when you consider insurance, tax, petrol, MOT’s and parking.

Cardiff is easily accessible by bus, taxi, bike or foot that you can leave the car behind when coming to Cardiff to study.

These pages act as one-stop-shop providing information on sustainable travel to make moving around Cardiff easier, trouble-free, greener and more enjoyable.

Please have a look around the website, follow the links, share with friends, and have a wonderful time exploring Cardiff in a sustainable way. Information included:
Cars and Car Sharing, Cycling, Walking, Public Transport, Park and Ride, Make a Move and get Involved and Best Practice. Don't forget to check out our lego lady launch the site with a little dance at: http://cardiffdigs.co.uk/
