A new campaign will be launching in Bristol to get us all looking at different ways of getting around the city.
£24million has come from the Department for Transport with the rest being put in from the West of England Partnership which represents the area's councils; Bristol, BANES, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.
The money will be used on things like helping people identify what alternative ways they can get to work or school, creating more electric car charging points and making bus travel cheaper for young people.
Councillor Tim Kent, vice chair of the Joint Transport Executive Committee, said: "Most people simply don't think about how they get to work, they do the same today as they did yesterday and will do tomorrow. This work is about waking people up to a new way to get to work, helping them think about options that might help them get fit, save some money and at the same time cutting carbon emissions and tackling congestion."
"This joint success means we can work in the key business growth areas, in rural areas and schools and colleges across the whole of the West of England, reaching more people and making more of a difference. Our Key Commuter Routes project has a travel team that go out to offices and work places helping personalise peoples travel patterns and offering suggestions for changes - to walking, cycles, electric bikes, buses, car share or a mix of all, depending on an individual's circumstances. Results show that this support gives people the information and confidence to try something else and that many people will change their travel to work habit as a result; helping themselves and everyone who uses the roads."
