We have compiled a list of resources and information to help promote and implement travel planning in your workplace.
Travel during work hours
Auckland Transport's Journey Planner can help you plan your public transport route and see all the options available for your trip.
You can register your business with Smart Travel for free and encourage employees to register their business trips for more efficient use of fleet vehicles.
Travelling under 2km?
Working away from your usual location is flexi-working; this can include other office locations and working from home. To minimise time spent travelling to and from meetings, could employees telework?
Video and teleconferencing
There are a number of low costs options available to businesses for video and teleconferencing which can eliminate the need to travel to meetings, saving money and reducing unproductive time spent driving.
Workplace travel videos
The workplace travel plan programme works with a range of businesses, tertiary institutes and business areas in the Auckland region.
People are switching to a wide range of travel modes, particularly public transport and carpooling.
Greening fleet vehicles
The fuel economy label generator is a great tool to find out how fuel efficient your fleet vehicles are. There is the option to print the label for display or save the text information.
