Workplace travel planning

Introduction

Work-related travel is a major expense for all businesses and an area where there is potential to make significant cost savings. As well as obvious expenses - like the costs of fuel and fleet maintenance, there are also hidden costs - like staff travelling time and providing parking spaces.

A workplace travel plan can encourage your staff to use alternatives to travelling alone in their cars. This can help save your business and your workers time and money, improve productivity and reduce your environmental impact.

This guide will show you how to design and introduce a workplace travel plan which will reduce the need for business travel. You will also find advice on how to support more sustainable transport options - like walking, cycling, public transport and car sharing.
