New Home, New Start, New Ways to Travel…

Our New Developments team are working with the new and existing residents in major new housing developments, most of which have a completely new transport infrastructure – new roads, new bus routes, new cycle and walking routes.

We are out and about in your community to:

  • Help you consider new ways to travel – locally and beyond
  • Help you discover more sustainable means of transport that will probably save you time and money (and maybe improve your health and fitness!)
  • Give you practical help to get you started

There is lots of information on this website to get you thinking…

  • Would you try another way to travel – but, don’t think you have any other options?
  • Would you walk or cycle – but, aren’t sure where to start?
  • Would you use the bus – but, don’t know which bus you need, where to catch it or what time it runs?
  • Would you consider car-sharing for your commute – but, aren’t sure how it works?

What types of travel?

In short, all types. For example:

  • Commuting to work, school or college
  • Trips to toddler groups, day clubs or shopping
  • Travelling to health appointments or to visit friends and family

How does it work?

Our teams go out into the local community and knock on doors to speak with residents within one month of moving home. Every resident we speak to then recieved:

  • A personalised Travel Planning service to answer your travel-related questions
  • A Travel Information Pack that contains information specifically for your new development and your individual travel needs
  • Access to a range of FREE offers and promotions to help you try new ways of getting around

We have been busy!
