9th November – Sussex – we visited two Trusts in the region both with very different challenges. One seeking to save money, curtail parking pressures and manage the impact of a relocation which will increase the number of staff on the new main site resulting in problems of how to get there and of maintaining interaction with the community.
The other Trust issue comes down to high personal car usage and mileage claims for short distance travel whilst serving the community. Both Trusts were very positive in seeking to assess how our service can radically help their travel planning.
It’s really interesting learning about all the individual issues affecting travel to and from and during the working day and working out how electric bikes can help address so many of these problems.
Makes us feel that we’re in the right business!
