Our Travel Plan sets out our ambitions to reduce carbon emissions from staff and student travel; the key drivers of this plan are to:
Sustainable travel is actively encouraged at Oxford Brookes through a wide range of travel discounts and incentives including:

All of our new fleet BROOKESbuses have been installed with the innovative Gyro Drive System, resulting in up to 17.9 per cent fuel saving and a 17 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions. The technology is the first in the country to be installed on a commercial bus service and has been developed by an Oxford Brookes Alumnus working with Williams Formula 1.
The new BROOKESbus vehiclesare the first Euro 6 buses in Oxford. This technology saves up to 95 per cent of the harmful NOx emissions compared to a Euro 5 vehicle, and in doing so exceeds the minimum standard for operation in the Oxford Low Emission (Zone which is set as Euro 5)
This project won the Green Apple Award for Carbon Reduction in 2015 and was a finalist for the Green Gown Award for Carbon Reduction in 2015.
