Active transport is the most cost-effective way to increase physical activity, reduce ill health and cut down emissions from road transport. For example, in 2017, Transport for London estimated that if every Londoner walked or cycled for 20 minutes a day, the NHS would save £1.7 billion in treatment costs over the next 25 years. However, according to the Royal College of Physicians, current investment in active transport represents only a tiny fraction of the £32 billion spent on transport annually. As of 2017, average UK-wide public spending on walking and cycling is £287 million per year (£4.30 per head). Employers can all help to promote active transport by encouraging people to walk and cycle more.
