The Mayor's Transport Strategy target is for all Londoners to achieve 20 minutes of active travel a day by 2041, the recommended amount for good health.
In this qualitative study, 46 Londoners who were not meeting the target were challenged to incorporate 20 minutes of active travel into their daily journeys. Participants were selected from three areas where the four 'near market' TCoL segments live (based on propensity and potential for active travel).
Once this change was triggered, many of the perceived barriers disappeared and respondents reported experiencing personal and social benefits. Many voiced commitment to integrating active travel into their regular trips in future.
