Keeping your campus green: Sustainable travel choices for two universities in Cornwall

Falmouth Exeter Plus is the shared services delivery partner of Falmouth University and the University of Exeter at their £200M shared campus in Cornwall.

Falmouth Exeter Plus agrees an annual Travel Plan with Cornwall Council’s Transportation team on behalf of its HE partners as a condition of the planning consent that was granted in order for the Campus to be developed – a key driver in the county’s economic regeneration. In 2011, Cornwall Council set a target to achieve a reduction in single car commuting to and from the Campus from 30% to 26% by 2013.

Falmouth Exeter Plus has exceeded this target by 4%, achieving a reduction of 22%, by implementing a creative Travel Plan that takes into account the unique challenges of meeting the differing needs of two universities and two local communities in a rural environment lacking in transport infrastructure, where people tend to rely on cars.
