We can provide background information and advice to help you implement Travel Plan measures for your organisation including:

  • improved access to public transport information.

We can also provide information to help with your:

  • staff travel survey;
  • site audits; and

Through our Sustainable Travel Grant Scheme (STGS) we can provide financial support to help with the implementation of your staff travel plan measures including bicycle parking facilities, leaflets, posters and other initiatives associated with promoting sustainable travel.
