Our Future Campus - Transport and Mobility

We’re proud to be working with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and partners in a collaborative two-year project titled: 'Choose Your Way Warwick'. Our campus is becoming a living lab, so we can test out new mobility ideas, approaches and technologies that could help to address the climate emergency.

What is 'Choose your way Warwick' about?

'Choose your way Warwick' is what we're calling our two-year partnership with TfWM, in which we will be:

  • Trialling new mobility ideas, approaches and technologies that could reduce car emissions.
  • Helping inform how we might enable our campus, local and ultimately worldwide communities to be cleaner, more sustainable and lead healthier lives.
  • Helping to address the climate emergency.

How can you help create a greener future?

This is your chance to experience the future of sustainable transport and mobility. By getting involved and trying out new modes of transport, you'll be helping to inform research and innovation, as well as contributing towards realising a better world for future generations.

Informing policy

The Future Transport Showcase will help inform policy and innovation, including how our campus e-scooter trial might change UK legislation.

  • For personal/leisure travel: If you need to hire a car on a short-term basis for any other purpose, you can use one of the cars that are in Car Park 8a (the car park next to The Junction) and in Cryfield Car park. You will have to cover the cost of this service yourself.

Increased pedestrian and cycling space
