A culture of sustainable travel is embedded throughout the Oxford Brookes and we want everyone to be actively involved in reducing their transport emissions.
Our Travel Strategy and Travel Plan set 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 fleet of BROOKESbuses have been installed with the innovative Gyro Drive System. This has resulted in up to 18% fuel saving and a 17% reduction in CO2 emissions. This technology was the first in the country to be installed on a commercial bus service and was developed by an Oxford Brookes Alumnus, working with Williams Formula 1.
The BROOKESbus vehicles were the first Euro 6 buses in Oxford. The bus technology saves up to 95% of the harmful NOx emissions compared to a Euro 5 vehicle, and in doing so exceeded the minimum standard for operation in the Oxford Low Emission Zone.
In 2018 we are launching 6 brand new buses in the fleet to continue with our successful partnership with the Oxford Bus Company.
The BROOKESbus 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. In 2016 Oxford Brookes won Green World Ambassador Status and in 2017 won the prestigious CUBO award for Business Partnership of the year for our work with Oxford Bus Company.
