To be an Island where cycling and walking are normal and realistic transport choices for people of all ages and abilities.

In early 2017 the Isle of Man Government determined what the Programme for Government. One of the priorities was to increase the number of people using more active forms of travel on a regular basis.

In May 2018 the Active Travel Strategy 2018 – 2021 was launched that set out the strategy for encouraging people to be able to choose to make regular everyday journeys by more active means.

Active travel is defined as “walking or cycling (including the use of electric bicycles) as an alternative to motorised transport (cars, buses, motorcycles etc) for the purpose of making everyday journeys. Terms such as “walking” or “walker” are used as generic terms to include running as well as non-motorised uses for instance wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, mobility scooters and other mobility aids, scooters and other means of self-propulsion.
