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 login to your business profile and follow our 3 easy steps to creating your travel plan:

1. Complete a travel audit

This audit gives you an idea of how well your business currently supports sustainable and active travel and it will provide a clear direction on areas to improve.

2. Run a travel survey

Discover how your staff currently travel and what is preventing them from making smarter travel choices.

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.

Short on time? Check out our ‘Top 10 Quick and Easy Ways to Smarter Travel’ toolkit.
