TfL is launching three new schemes to assist
businesses in providing facilities for staff who
want to reduce their dependency on private cars.
Under the new schemes, if companies
draw up workplace travel plans which lay
out how they will encourage and help their
staff to use sustainable transport – like
cycling, walking or public transport – in return
they can be offered the following incentives:

> Up to £1,000 match funding for facilities
including showers, lockers and drying

> Free cycle stands for up to 40 bicycles,

> Trade-price Raleigh bicycles for pool cycle

As part of a TfL-funded scheme, London
boroughs offer free consultations with
workplace travel advisors to produce travel

These plans can include initiatives to
encourage cycling, walking, public transport
use, flexible working and teleworking.
