Call to ditch cars for the day

Have your say

A PUBLIC transport operator is urging motorists to ditch their vehicles in favour of more environmentally-friendly alternatives.

Car drivers and motorbike riders are being invited to do their bit for planet by taking part in World Car Free Day on Saturday.

Travel South Yorkshire has signed up to take part in the event, designed to promote the benefits of using public transport, walking and cycling.

The Travel South Yorkshire website has a range of planning tools and advice designed to make it easier to give the car a rest.

David Brown, of South Yorkshire Public Transport Executive, said: “The tools available on the Travel South Yorkshire website make it so easy for you to plan trips.”
