Delivering net zero transport in a rural county

A ‘smart county’ approach to physical connectivity
Run by: Surrey County Council

In Surrey, 46% of the county’s carbon emissions come from transport, and over half of that is from private cars and taxis. On 10th November, Farnham in Surrey will host the county’s transport-themed event, which will inspire residents to change the way they travel. Being held in Upper Hart car park from 10am to 3pm, the event will showcase new and innovative ways residents can change their transport to reduce their carbon footprint. With a variety of demonstrations and exhibits throughout the day, residents can find out more about how to change their transport behaviour for the better including:

● Electric bike demonstrations from Canyon
● A pedal-powered Scalextric challenge
● Free bike repairs and maintenance advice
● Free bike repairs and maintenance advice
● Free test drives of electric cars and a van from Energy Saving Trust
● Chance to see a hydrogen bus, similar to those which will be on Surrey’s roads next year
● Information on the climate change in Surrey, and the trees programme including free seeds and saplings
