Major Updates

If you are a Bristol based business, get in touch with us and find out how sustainable transport can benefit your staff and organisation. We are sustainable travel experts  funded by the Department for Transport to increase the number of people walking, cycling, using public transport, and car-sharing. Our project has been running for over 9 years and has worked with over 450 business, including all the main employers in the city. We have a huge array of FREE support available to you. From travel plans to grants, events to loan bikes. We just need your help to encourage your staff to make sustainable travel their first choice.

Benefits to your business:

  1. Improve staff health and wellbeing; reducing sickness and absenteeism
    Employees who regularly cycle or walk are fitter, healthier and take less sick days.
  2. Reduce required car parking provision and associated cost
    Car parking takes up space and is an extra business expense. Ten bicycles can be parked in a single car parking space. Speak to us about our Parking Cost Estimator tool that will show you how much you can save by reducing your car parking provision.
  3. Increase staff morale and productivity
    Regular commuting cyclists report a greater tolerance of stress, and an enhanced perception of wellbeing and self-confidence. With work-related stress anxiety or depression accounting for over half of all working days lost due to ill health in Great Britain, this benefit cannot be ignored.
  4. Reduce business travel time and cost
    Bristol has some of the lowest traffic speeds in the country at peak times. Time spent in traffic and finding a car parking space is costing businesses time and money.
  5. Reduce congestion and air pollution
    80% of morning traffic in Bristol city centre relates to commuting, leading to considerable strain on the network, costing the economy over £600m a year.
  6. Improve your environmental credentials
    Make a statement and have your business stand out from the crowd.
