Helping to promote sustainable travel in a large local organisation by encouraging people to plan their journey.

Employees of the organisation are working towards developing their Staff Travel Plan.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
