Benefits of a travel plan

Although the implementation of a travel plan will inevitably incur costs in terms of both time and money, the wider benefits gained arguably outweigh these:

  • reduced journey times and costs

  • improved health and morale of workforce

  • enhanced environmental company image

  • avoidance of future parking and congestion charging

  • reduced demand for on-site parking

Organisations with travel plans appear more responsible towards their employees, the local community and the environment – with the possibility of travel plans being used to gain environmental accreditations such as ISO 14001 and EMAS.
