Not only are you provided with each travel option but also the journey duration, cost and calories burned. To request your Personal Travel Plan, please fill in the short form on the Personal Travel Planning section.
2. Make a Change
Start practising more sustainable travel today! Use one of your regular journeys under 5 km and try to walk it or cycle it instead to see what difference it makes in time and fitness gained. Perhaps it doesn’t take as long as you thought or it could even take less time, but the benefits to you and your community are priceless. You can find further information over on our Driftway Walking and Cycling pages about which amenities are local to you and within walking and cycling distances.
3. Investigate a Cycle to Work Scheme
Find out if your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme like Cyclescheme or Free2Cycle. These schemes are set up to benefit employees by saving between 25-39% on the cost of a bicycle and cycling accessories. Payments for the equipment are conveniently deducted through your salary. You can find out more on the Cyclescheme website and invite your employer to join if they haven’t already!
