Benefits to your business

  • Employees who regularly cycle or walk are fitter, healthier and take less sick days.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Time spent in traffic and finding a car parking space is costing businesses time and money.

  • 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.

  • Make a statement and have your business stand out from the crowd.

Join My Journey launches for West of England commuters

Join My Journey is a free online service that matches commuters up from the same workplace to share walking, cycling and car journeys.

Business leaders across Bristol and the West of England are now being encouraged to sign up their companies and organisations to the online platform so their staff can easily share journeys to work.

For anyone who does not work in a large company, there is also the option to join an area hub, where smaller businesses are linked up with others to share journeys to the same area.

Visit joinmyjourney.org.uk to register your organisation or join as an individual.
