Get to know the travel habits of your organisation – by taking part in the Travel to Work Survey 2016
11th February 2016
This year the travel to work survey is being carried out by all four West of England Unitary Authorities. It is aimed at businesses and looks at how their employees travel to/from work. Each business that has more than 30+ employees taking part get an individual company report showing them how their staff travel to/from work, how many staff are considering changing from a specific mode to another one, gender and age breakdowns by modes etc.
It is a really useful tool for a business looking to see what it can do to increase use of public and active transport to work. It also helps inform the local authorities about issues, gaps in infrastructure, concerns and aspirations of commuters which translates into funding bids, new infrastructure and local authorities spending priorities.
More information about the survey is available at : http://travelwest.info/businesses/survey. There is an Essential Info sheet, a video and promotional materials on that site for companies to use. The Essential Info sheet explains to businesses how the survey can benefit them, how to distribute it to get the high, unbiased response rates etc.
Registration is now open and runs until 22nd February.
After that date participating companies will be sent a link to test the survey against their internal IT systems to make sure it is accessible by staff. The Survey itself runs from 7th – 13th March.
