Information on travel planning and the four regional travel planner coordinators who offer FREE advice, help and support to organisations and their staff on sustainable travel and  developing travel plans.

A travel plan is a way for organisations to encourage their staff to use sustainable and active travel.

By developing a travel plan your organisation can:

  • help cut congestion
  • reduce its carbon footprint
  • promote sustainable transport
  • improve staff health and wellbeing
  • ensure business continuity
  • cut costs.

In your travel plan you could include measures such as:

  • providing secure cycle parking
  • discounted cycle purchase schemes
  • discounted public transport tickets
  • providing a car sharing service
  • providing opportunities for staff to work from home
  • reducing business travel.

We fund four regional travel planner coordinators who can offer you free advice, help and support on sustainable travel and  developing travel plans. They can help with a range of initiatives including:

The travel planning toolkit - Sustrans

To help with the development and implementation of a successful travel plan. The travel planning toolkit (external link).

Smart Travel Training - Traveline Cymru

This is available for businesses and organisations in Wales. Working with partners including TravelineCymru and Sustrans, the travel planners will provide training sessions to a group of individuals who can then act as sustainable travel champions for their organisation - a car sharing scheme - to help individuals share their journeys. Smart Travel Training (external link).

The Welsh Travel Plan Awards
