Sustainable travel options
Useful links to information on sustainable ways to travel, such as walking, cycling, car clubs and car share.
Car clubs and car share
Most of us need to use a car from time to time, however there are ways to ensure that when we do travel by car, the journey is as economical and environmentally friendly as possible.
Enterprise Car Club
TPN members can join Enterprise Car Club for free. Employees can benefit from joining privately from £1 a year, with their Annual MCard (a saving of £59 annually).
Lift sharing allows you to cut the costs of travel by sharing your journeys with others.
Walk to work
Walking to work is a brilliant way of fitting in the recommended 30 minutes of daily exercise.
Benefits of regular walking, whether for work or leisure:
- reduced risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers.
- help with weight control
- good mental health
Commuting to work by bike is a brilliant way of fitting in the recommended daily exercise you need to keep fit and healthy. Studies show that people who exercise regularly are more productive at work and have less absence days through stress or illness.
