Greater Manchester businesses are being urged to sign up for free sustainable travel support – including grants of up to £10,000 – to save money, increase productivity and help create a healthier workforce.
Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM’s) Travel Choices business team has helped 500 companies since it launched three years ago and now wants more firms to enjoy the advantages of encouraging employees to leave the car at home when they commute.
Once they become members of its Business Travel Network, companies and staff can benefit from exclusive initiatives and practical support to make travelling to work by foot, bike and public transport easier.
Some businesses have built cycling lockers, showers and changing facilities by successfully applying for grants of up to £10,000, while others have enjoyed free public transport taster tickets, loan bikes, organised walking and cycling events, workshops and bespoke travel advice for employees.
