The Kings Hill Collective Travel Plan is designed to encourage a reduction in car use and a modal shift to car sharing, public transport, cycling and walking. The car sharing scheme is available via this website.
Liberty has developed a Tenant and Resident Travel Plan Guide to assist businesses and home owners in the development of their own plans. Kings Hill Travel Guide
Operated by the national Liftshare organisation, Liftshare provides Kings Hill employees and residents with an opportunity to share fuel costs and reduce car usage and so reduce the negative impact on the environment.
Liftshare is the largest car share network in the UK and is a social enterprise, mission driven rather than profit driven. The scheme is able to fund services which help with parking issues, saving money and reducing local pollution and congestion – and members don’t pay a penny to join.

At Kings Hill walking and cycling are promoted by a network of paths and cycle routes and connections to links beyond. In addition to the roadside pavements, which are designed for combined pedestrian and cycle use in the residential areas, there are also landscaped “greenway” paths which provide easy access between the housing and the central amenities. Further routes will be created as new homes are built.
Within the business park there are roadside cycle routes which connect to the cycle route on the A228 bypass which also leads to West Malling (for Kings Hill) station.
The footpath and cycle ways on Kings Hill have been designed for convenience of movement; to the amenities and schools, within and between the housing and business park and to and from the wider network outside Kings Hill. Additionally, Kent has many spectacular walks and cycle rides to enjoy.
