Supporting you and your staff to make smarter travel choices
Transport isn't just about getting from A to B
It's an essential part of business.
Our goal is to empower you and your workforce to make smarter travel choices. Sustainable and active travel have a positive impact on both our environment and our physical and mental health.
It is also a key element of establishing a modern, environmentally conscious workplace culture. Encouraging sustainable and active travel will not only benefit your employees, it will benefit your business.
Three easy steps to unlock the benefits of smarter travel
Our travel audit is the first step in making your business an industry leader in green and sustainable travel. The audit gives you an idea of how well your business currently supports sustainable and active travel and provides a clear direction on areas to improve.
Find out exactly how your staff currently travel and what is preventing them from making smarter travel choices. This will help you provide the most appropriate support in choosing more sustainable and active alternatives.
Use information from the audit and survey, as well as the resources on this website, to develop an effective travel plan for your organisation. This plan will be the foundation for unlocking the benefits of sustainable and active travel in your workplace.
The most popular options for
Greener alternative travel.
Walking (or running!) to work is a great way to counterbalance the sedentary effects of an office environment. Not only is walking a great form of low-impact exercise, it also has mental-health benefits.
Healthier staff can contribute to reduced absenteeism, improved productivity and better job satisfaction. Our walking toolkits can help your team make the switch to walking to work or integrate walking into their working days.
On your bike!
Cycling is a great way to travel, promoting an active lifestyle and a low carbon-footprint. Studies have shown that people who cycle, even for part of their journey, receive considerable health benefits compared to those who travel seated, such as in a car.
Our cycling toolkits provide all the information you need to transform your organisation into a cycle friendly workplace and encourage your employees to take up cycling.
Using the bus or train
Encourage your colleagues to consider public transport. Even using public transport for part of their journey can contribute to a more carbon-efficient way of travel compared to driving. Often staff aren’t aware of public transport options for their commute, so promoting alternative options in your workplace can help to make different travel choices.
Our toolkits will help you promote public transport and direct your colleagues to the relevant support to find the best public-transport solution for their journey in Devon.
Smarter travel by car
Sometimes there is no option other than a car, especially in a rural area such as Devon. However, there are still ways in which we can make smarter travel choices when driving.
This toolkit will help you to encourage your workforce to drive in the most efficient way, in order to have less of an impact on the environment. Together, we can help to reduce congestion and increase air quality for everyone.

Devon County Council battle carnage left by Storm Ciarán
Devon County Council have been rushed off their feet today (November 2) as Storm Ciarán batters the region. Strong winds and torrential rain has led to more than 80 reported incidents of fallen trees, flooded roads and landslips on local roads.
DCC advice for people travelling on Devon’s roads today:
• Be alert to fallen trees and branches, particularly on minor roads where they may not have been reported; • Consider if your journey is essential and be alert to weather warnings; • Never drive through floodwater or swollen flowing water, you don’t know how deep it is. Find an alternative route; • Allow additional time for your journey; • Reduce your speed and leave more space between you and the vehicle in front and leave plenty of room if you’re overtaking; • Drive with care and according to the conditions.
