Case studies help fleets develop green strategies

GREEN-minded employers will soon be able to access a series of case studies about how to develop travel plans for their workplaces, and how to make the plans work.

The Government is about to publish a guide, entitled 'Making Travel Plans Work: Lessons from UK Case Studies' that draws its conclusions from the travel plans of 20 organisations, including offices and schools.

Transport Minister David Jamieson added that the Government would also evaluate a 'programme of free advice on travel plans.'

All national and local government buildings are tasked with having a green travel plan in place to help staff commute by public transport, cycling, walking or car sharing.

Furthermore, in February 2001 the Government awarded 111 bursaries worth a total of £9 million over three years to 84 local authorities so they could employ co-ordinators to support the development of travel plans to places of work.
