Green Travel Plans
I’m getting involved with a new green travel plan at work (2x Medium sized NHS hospitals).
Last one was written to tick a box and nothing done. Anything changed will upset staff, most of then live within 5 miles and drive in, then take the lift to the first floor.
Preliminary plan is to encourage cycling & walking, decrease car use (no s1t sherlock), make staff fitter & healthier/ more productive. No budget allocated as yet.
First thoughts - better staff changing /cycling facilities, limiting car park passes, better bus stop nearer the entrance. NHS cycle scheme is rubbish, they charge for finance an your bike gets ordered from catalogue then delivered. Need to betterize disabled drop off facilities, its generally clogged up by the consultants Jaguars.
Maybe ask local outdoors shop for staffs discounts for waterproof n’that, maybe a free breakfast in the canteen for walkists/ cyclists.
Nothing mentioned about motorbikes/mopeds, are they seen as Green? I know deliveries to site are supposed to be included but how can you control external pre- approved suppliers?
Any thoughts, help & advice appreciated.
