bike schemeTransport Insights has produced a note providing advice about Travel Plans; what they are, who they are of interest to and why should you develop one?  It describes the approach, characteristics and benefits of a Travel Plan, focusing on the balance of development and implementation, and how this relates to the rewards of success and risks of failure.  The note also provides useful links to best-practice guidance and other valuable behavioural change resources, as produced by the National Transport Authority‚Äôs Smarter Travel team.
 
Travel Plans, also called Mobility Management Plans or Commuter Strategies, seek to promote active travel (walking and cycling) and public transport, and reduce car use, through a targeted and integrated package of measures.  How can my organisation benefit from a Travel Plan?
