We have secured almost £200,000 in government funding to continue our work to encourage active travel and provide better walking, wheeling and cycling infrastructure for people in Brighton & Hove.

This will help people save money on transport, improve health and reduce their carbon footprints. 

Over the next 12 months, the money will be used to support various projects in the city.

Move for Change – Powered by Betterpoints

People in Brighton & Hove can now get rewards when they choose active and sustainable travel. 

The ‘Move for Change’ initiative, powered by the BetterPoints app, launched in 2020 to encourage and reward residents and employees for walking, cycling, and using public transport. 

When you sign up to the Move for Change challenge on the Betterpoints app, you can collect points which can be exchanged for discounts and vouchers at local shops or donate them to charity. 

When you use the app, you can also earn or win BetterPoints or BetterTickets (for monthly online raffle prizes), when you take part in surveys and competitions.

Brighton & Hove Walking festival 

Brighton & Hove first Walking Festival will take place between 24 June and 9 July. 

Brighton & Hove has so much to offer. The Walking Festival is the perfect opportunity to explore or rediscover the city and its surroundings. 

This two-week event offers free led walks across the city for everyone, regardless of fitness and ability.

If you like historical tours, nature walks, creative or mindful experiences or you just want to start moving again, meet new people and get out and about, there’s something for you. 

Some walks will need to be booked in advance. 

We’d like to thank all the walking groups, charities and Brighton & Hove City Council officers supporting the festival. 

eCargo bikes accelerator project  

Thanks to funding from our Carbon Neutral Fund, we're supporting some local businesses and organisations buy eCargo bikes. 

We also have a subsidy to encourage local businesses and organisations to switch to a third-party electric cargo (eCargo) bike delivery service  for delivery of goods and services.  

Find more information on our eCargo bike accelerator webpage.

eCargo bike events 

To promote this project some eCargo bike events will be held in town at selected locations throughout the year. We'll update this page when we have more information. 

Business owners and office staff can find out more at these events and some eCargo bikes will be made available to see and potentially try. Impartial advice on buying the right type of ecargo bike is also available.  

Supporting local businesses 

Companies could be awarded up to £500 for sustainable deliveries to business to business or business to customer.  


Ebike commuter project 

We have procured 9 e-bikes, funded through the Department for Transport’s Capability Fund 2021/2022. These will be loaned to employees at selected workplaces and healthcare settings to use for a 3 month trial period for commuting, journeys to work (such as home visits) and leisure.  

The aim of this project is to encourage and create travel behaviour change, switching people from vehicle use to e-bikes for short journeys (between 0 to 5 miles) 


E-bikes use an electrical assist motor which adds power while the rider is pedalling.  

This enables people to ride for longer and further, while carrying loads.  

Riders get the same health benefits as from conventional bikes because they encourage people to cycle further and more frequently over time.  

E-bikes also give riders confidence on busy roads. 

Monitoring and evaluation 

This project will monitor and evaluate the use of the ebikes using the Department for Transport’s monitoring and evaluation guidance. 

Cycle training 

We offer subsidised cycle training to empower people to travel more actively, be safer cyclists and make better travel choices

Workplace travel
