Shortening or eliminating the need for car journeys has been one of the principal objectives of the development. The only vehicles able to travel through the site will be public buses. All cars and commercial vehicles will enter and leave by Tom Benson Way.

The bus service will include Preston Orbital buses, which will put Cottam Hall, the Lancaster Canal and Preston Sports Arena in easy reach of many other parts of Preston for shopping, work and leisure.

For residents, both of Cottam Hall and adjacent areas, the main household shopping will be accessible by foot, whilst connections to surrounding footpath and cycleways will give access to the City centre, Lancaster Canal, Preston Sports Arena and the open country side beyond.
