In April 2021 the Campus developed its 2021-2025 Green Travel Plan, which focuses on reducing single occupancy vehicles commuting to Campus to reduce the congestion issues and carbon emissions in the local area.
The Travel plan takes a set of best-practice and locally specific initiatives to create a package of measures that can be introduced to make it easier for staff and visitors to choose different, cleaner and/or more sustainable ways to get to a particular site.
Initiatives include car-sharing, a dedicated Campus coach service, a cycle to work scheme and provision of charging ports for electric cars at various locations here on Campus.
We have a variety of schemes and incentives in place to help us meet our targets for a greener and more sustainable Campus. Those include:
- We operate 10 return bus routes every weekday with a total seat capacity of 900. Buses are free to all staff and include shuttle buses from local train stations Whittlesford Parkway/Sawston.
- Promotion of railcard information and travel discounts to all staff.
- Additional electric car charging points have been installed bringing up the current total to 16.
- Electric Vehicle salary sacrifice scheme
- Car Share Schemes
- A number of Cycle to Work events are held every year to help raise awareness amongst staff.
- Dr Bike is invited to Campus to help staff with any bike maintenance issues.
- Regular Travel surveys conducted to help us understand how far those working on Campus are commuting.
