Travel Planning and Advice

A travel plan is a long term management strategy for a site, group of sites or organisation which contains a package of measures to:

  • reduce the need to travel (especially as a single occupant in a car)
  • promote more environmentally friendly modes of transport by offering a range of travel choices
  • include other measures such as tackling car parking management and site access problems.

How can travel plans help?

The associated benefits of a travel plan are that they can help:

  • reduce travel costs and expenses
  • improve site access and reduce car parking problems
  • improve company's image
  • improving staff well-being, health and fitness as well as the environment
  • build better relationships with the local community, public transport operators and the local authority.
