TravelWise Week 2023
TravelWise Week takes place from 16th September until 22nd September each year. This week is all about supporting and promoting active travel, public transport & healthier travel choices!
As part of TravelWise week World Car Free Day falls on 22nd September, encouraging everyone to find an alternative mode of travel for just one day!
Encouraging greener modes of travel is a priority for Colmore BID as we look to improve public health and play our part in achieving important environmental goals. We have collated a range of useful resources for local businesses and commuters looking to learn more about sustainable travel in and around the District. More info on greener travel options can be found here.
In support of TravelWise Week we are pleased to announce we will be seeing the return of Dr Bike on Snow Hill Square from 9am until 1pm on Tuesday 19th September! No appointment required, pop over to with your bicycle for a free bike health check!
