Helping residents of Fort William to travel smarter
HItravel Fort William is helping local residents to improve the environment of Fort William, Caol and Corpach, to make them more pleasant places to visit and spend time. The campaign aims to reduce traffic congestion in addition to helping people be a bit more active.
Cars have an important role to play in our transport system, and are essential for many people’s journeys. Yet no-one wants the town to be dominated by traffic.
Highland Council, bus operators, Hitrans and others are working to provide good quality infrastructure and transport services where they can. However, it’s up to everyone that travels in and around Fort William to help reduce traffic congestion.
There are good alternatives to the car for many journeys around Fort William, and big savings can be made by choosing them.
