Guidance and resources for smarter travel

This section of the Travel Devon toolkit is full of all the practical information you need to help you and your colleagues to make smarter travel choices.

Whether that’s getting more of your colleagues cycling to work, including public transport for part of their journey, or understanding how better driving practices can impact our environment, there are plenty of resources available.

You can use this information to develop a comprehensive travel plan for your organisation, or just use a few of our toolkits to promote specific alternative methods to travel – whatever suits your organisation best.

New to travel planning?

We would encourage you to register on the Travel Devon Toolkit, login to your business profile and follow our 3 easy steps to creating your travel plan:

1. Complete a travel audit

Registering on the Travel Devon Toolkit will give you access to our travel audit tool. This audit will you a good idea of how well your business currently supports sustainable and active travel.

The report generated after submitting your audit, will provide you a clear direction on areas to improve and where to find more guidance.

2. Run a travel survey

Your business profile on the Travel Devon Toolkit gives you access to our ready to use travel survey. This survey will help you discover how your staff currently travel and what is preventing them from making smarter travel choices by running a travel survey.

After you close the survey, simply generate your survey report to view the analysed results.

3. Create a travel plan

Use information from the audit and survey, as well as the resources we offer, to develop an effective travel plan for your organisation.

We have put together a travel plan guide and template to help you create an effective strategy to manage travel to and from your site.
