Carbon Estimates

As part of our journey planning service we provide an estimate of the CO2 emissions savings that would be made by taking the suggested public transport option instead of driving. Our calculations are estimates, as all distances involved are not exact—they are meant as a guide. We also assume zero carbon emissions for walking.
