Travel Action Group

Advocating for ways of getting to and around the Tavistock area that are better for people and planet than dependence on fossil fuels.

Local travel as it could be?

Our meetings share views on how easy it is to use sustainable transport around the Tavistock area and to nearby towns – and ideas on how it could be better and more inclusive. Frequent, well-connected public transport in all directions; safe and enjoyable to walk, wheel or cycle to facilities; enabling change to low emission vehicles for personal and business travel? What changes would you make?

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 21st March, 2.30-4.30pm in Pinder Court Communal Room, King Street, Tavistock PL19 0DS. All welcome – accessible venue. More details and booking link here.

Take a look at our Walkable Tavistock initiative, one outcome of which is our popular Walkable Tavistock map.

In October 2023 we interviewed over 90 passengers at Tavistock Bus Station. We have shared our report of their insights with contacts at Devon County Council, West Devon Borough Council and Tavistock Town Council.

We’re keen to involve individuals, groups and businesses who want to shape this vision for mobility, influence decisions and encourage low-carbon travel habits. Whether your concern is potholed pavements or diesel fumes, cycle safety or bus routes, get in touch on travel@transitiontavistock.org.uk.

Influencing decision makers

Which body is responsible for what in transport? And what they up to? One of the things we can do, individually or together, is respond to official consultations which affect sustainable travel. We list selected ones here.

We are one of the groups representing bus users on Devon BUS Forum.
