The Finalists:

  • IKEA Distribution Centre, south Peterborough - IKEA

  • TVP Travel Workplace Travel Plan – Thames Valley Park Travel

  • University of York Travel Plan Strategy – University of York

Winner: Thames Valley Park Travel Workplace Travel Plan

Thames Valley Park (TVP) is home to a number of international businesses with more than 8,000 employees.

In 2009, a TVP Travel Plan Steering Group was established to address localised congestion and car-parking issues at the business park, and to deliver improvements to public transport services.

TVP Travel recognised that more meaningful initiatives could be afforded and implemented by persuading local businesses to contribute financially to a common fund.

TVP Travel includes a 5-day a week bus service that transports 450,000 passengers a year, removing those trips from the local highway network.

The TVP Travel's website is promoted to new employees during staff inductions and offers staff discounts and benefits whilst encouraging sustainable commuting.

Thames Valley Park has seen a 6% reduction in single car occupancy, a 2% increase in cycle commuting, a 4% increase in rail travel and a 7% increase in bus use. 750,000 car journeys off the local network.
