FREE Personal Travel Planning and Business Travel Pack

Kristen Jones, Norfolk County Council

Norfolk County Council is keen to promote sustainable travel in Norfolk and Norwich, especially business travel.  We have put together our Business Travel Pack, which is part of the Better Bus Area (BBA) initiative.  Norfolk County Council has been successful in securing £2.583m from the Department for Transport’s Better Bus Area Fund (http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/BetterBusArea). 

The Business Travel Pack is a useful business resource to find information about car sharing, cycling to work, buses, as well as tips on avoiding roadworks to make your daily commute as stress-free as possible.

We listened to what local businesses told us they wanted help with and there are a number of benefits to getting involved:

  • Reducing car park pressures
  • Reducing business expenditure
  • Helping you attract and retain staff
  • Active travel increases productivity

We have a team that is dedicated to helping you with the travel needs of your business.  Visit the Business Travel section to download your Business Travel Pack by clicking this link: http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/BusinessTravel

Please join our LinkedIn group - the Business Travel Network for Norwich, which we regularly update with helpful information for business on how to promote sustainable travel.  The link is: www.tinyurl.com/BusinessTravelNetwork4Norwich

One aspect of the Business Travel Pack is personal travel planning (PTP). Liftshare.com has produced a handy tool called myPTP which automates PTP, taking out the research time and administration and making it a much easier service to deliver to staff and customers.

Norfolk County Council have purchased a number of myPTP credits from Liftshare.com and are in the process of offering these (at no cost) to businesses in Norwich. We’re initially offer up to 250 free credits but may be able to extend this depending on demand from other businesses.

If you are interested in obtaining your free myPTP credits for your business, please download our simple PDF form, save it to your PC, complete it, and email it to me (travelplans@norfolk.gov.uk). Don’t miss your chance to get this great tool for free! The link to the form is: http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/view/ncc148924

Feel free to contact me on my details below if you have any further questions and I'd be happy to help!
