A Travel Plan can benefit businesses in many ways:
A Travel Plan can reduce the cost of running a fleet, staff travel costs and mileage claims and the cost of providing and maintaining parking spaces. It can also raise revenue through car park charging and tax or National Insurance savings.
A Travel Plan can improve accessibility for customers and deliveries and improve the recruitment and retention of staff.
A Travel Plan can help organisations meet health and well-being, environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility targets. A Travel Plan is also required to achieve the Corporate Health Standard.
Meet Planning Obligations
A Travel Plan may be a requirement when making planning applications to expand or relocate premises.
A successful Travel Plan usually means working in partnership with other organisations such as the local authority, local community groups and transport providers.
A positive business image and public profile can also be enhanced through improved air quality, reduced congestion and better local transport links around the site.
A Travel Plan containing measures to promote active ways to travel can help employees get the physical activity everyone needs to remain healthy. A healthier workforce means increased productivity and reduced sickness levels.
