What is a Travel Plan?

A travel plan is a general term for a package of measures tailored to the needs of individual companies and aimed at promoting greener, cleaner travel choices and reducing reliance on the car.

It involves the development of a set of mechanisms and targets that together, can enable an organisation to reduce the impact of travel and transport on the environment. It can also bring a number of other benefits to your organisation as an employer and to staff.

Benefits for a company

  • increased productivity from a healthier, motivated workforce
  • potential cost savings
  • reduced congestion
  • reduced demand for parking and improved access

Benefits for staff

  • cost and time savings
  • improved health
  • better quality of life

Benefits for the environment

  • cleaner air
  • lower noise levels
  • a reduction in the country's contribution to global warming
