- A travel to work survey to develop an existing Travel Plan;
- The promotion of shared mobility measures (including car sharing and car clubs)
- Personalised Travel Planning
- Improving pedestrian/cycle access to a place of work;
- Any other scheme that encourages sustainable and active travel
Any business or organisation in the SEStran region may apply for funding towards measures aimed at encouraging sustainable travel.
