Travel For Work

The Travel For Work scheme, which will incorporate the Cycle Friendly Employer Scheme, starts at the end of September, when Teresa Broadstock starts in her post as Travel For Work advisor. Teresa was appointed in place of Anne Taylor who is leaving to start a degree course in Archaeology. The new scheme broadens the scope of the project to include other alternatives to the single-occupant car for work related travel, though cycling will still be a major focus.

One of the first events for the new scheme is a half day conference at the University Centre on October 30. Called ‘A Moving Business’, the keynote speaker will be Baroness Hayman, Minister for Roads. The target audience is, naturally, Cambridge area businesses. If anyone would like more details, contact David Parkin at the City Council (davidpa@cambridge.gov.uk).
