Our cycle parking is located [enter details, link to a map where possible] and there are showers and lockers available [give details or amend as necessary].

Bus travel

Presenting this information as a table with all lines, destinations and times, can be very useful].

Plan your journey – find out which train goes where and plan your journey door-to-door using Traveline.

 Car sharing

Car sharing can be a great way of travelling to a business meeting – and networking at the same time! You can register regular or one-off business journeys on Liftshare.com – with more than 11,000 registered journeys.

[If you have designated car sharing parking bays, mention here.]

Eco driving

Make modest changes to your driving and adopt an ‘eco driving’ style to use less fuel on every journey made, save money, reduce CO2 emissions and be a safer driver. Find more information at the AA.

Car parking

[It’s important to list car parking options last, to encourage people to look at other options. If parking on site is difficult then say so here. Visitors may be more willing to look at alternatives if they know in advance they may be unlikely to find a parking space and it may also save your reception staff some grief! If you charge for visitor parking include this information too.]
