Travel Information

Providing staff, visitors and customers with travel information can help them make informed choices which suit their daily routines. These toolkits and templates will help your organisation provide effective travel information.

 Walking and running to work

These toolkits provide the business case for promoting walking and active working in the sedentary office environment.  Find out how your site facilities and business initiatives can support staff to walk or run.

Cycling

Use these toolkits to help your staff, customers and visitors to make positive, beneficial changes to their lives and your business by supporting and encouraging them to cycle.

Public Transport

Encouraging staff to travel by public transport can reduce car parking congestion and support local services.

Motorcycling

These toolkits provide commuters with motorcycling information and information about Devon Wheels 2 Work.

Driving

In a rural County such as Devon, car travel can be the best option for some people. The toolkits below can be used to encourage people to use cars in the most efficient way.

Business mileage

With the high price of fuel, the costs of business mileage can really add up. Find out how your organisation can save money by reducing business mileage.

Business Policies

Business policies can have a large influence on how employees travel. By reviewing key policies organisations can enable more trips to be made by sustainable modes and save money in the process.

Remote Working

Enabling remote working can lead to significant cost savings for organisations.

Travel planning business support

If your workplace is based in Exeter, Newton Abbot or Barnstaple, registering your workplace on the Travel Devon Toolkit unlocks grant funding for sustainable travel initiatives.

Grant funding can be used for promotional events such as bike maintenance sessions, cycle parking or certain measures supporting teleconferencing, flexible working, and working from home.

Please be advised that our grants are currently closed but are expected to re-open later in the year. Please sign up to our Travel Devon Newsletter to stay up to date. 

There are also free additional support schemes for individual members of staff. For example bus taster tickets, adult cycle confidence sessions and more.
