Greener walking routes for Bristol
Go Jauntly is delighted to have worked with Tranquil City and Bristol City Council on introducing Green Routes Tranquility Scores to walking routes in Bristol.
Tranquility scores are calculated using many factors, including street design, the amount and quality of greenspace and noise pollution. When multiple routes are available, the benefits of walking the slower and greener route can be seen before setting off. The tranquility score is designed to encourage more people to be part of the movement shifting to more sustainable and healthier ways of living in cities.
During a participant survey held in Bristol, it was observed that when people walked a Green Route alternative:
- 70% felt more relaxed and less tense
- 50% were happier
- 36% were more likely to choose walking as opposed to an alternative transport method
You can start using the enhanced journey planner to help plan walks to work, school and trips to the shops that helps you seek out nature and avoid busier, more polluted streets.
There are lots of interesting walks to be discovered in Bristol, including parks, heritage and art trails, riverside paths, woodlands and more. Download the Go Jauntly app to help get you started!
