Abstract

Transport policy in the UK now emphasises managing travel demand, with the generators of travel expected to play a role. Workplace travel plans are part of this, with a cohort running within organisations since the early 2000s. Concentrating on the private sector, this article presents the results of an employer survey of 25 organisations, showing how the motivations for travel plans have changed over time, and what they are anticipated to be in the future.

An important finding has been to identify factors that have led to a travel plan progressing from a reactive (e.g. a planning consent), to a proactive state, whereby the travel plan starts to deliver business objectives, becoming organisationally embedded.
