The journey to work is vitally important for everyone. Many people choose to use their cars for these trips out of habit or because they feel there are no other options.

Perhaps some of your employees would love to cycle if there was a secure cycle storage area, some showers or a changing room? Perhaps others would catch the bus if you could offer them another way of making their business trips such as a pool car or pool bike? A lot of organisations can’t afford to offer these things to their employees but would like to if the cost wasn’t an issue.
