Ditch the Car Star Sudhanshu

24 June 2019

Every week we are awarding a £10 Love2Shop Voucher to our 'Ditch the Car Star' as part of the Travelwest Challenge.

Our second winner is Sudhanshu M. Before he joined the challenge, Sudhanshu would commute by car and as part of the Travelwest Challenge he has swapped car trips for more sustainable journeys as well as active travel. In his survey he indicated that he has saved on his travel costs and feels much happier. 

This is what he said about how joining the challenge and how it has helped him specifically: 

"It was difficult to Ditch the Car initially - especially with my weekly shopping, but changing my shopping habits was a solution. One of the feel good factors about this challenge is that I'm reducing my personal carbon footprint in this era of global warming. Also it's a fact Bristol roads are getting busier, driving has become a stressful activity especially in peak hours.

Travelling by public transport is relatively stress free and I get my 'me time' to read or simply look around. Ditching my car was great for getting exercise and saving a bit of money which I can spend on other things."

Congratulations to Sudhanshu and well done for making changes to the way you travel.
