A travel plan is a set of measures that are designed to help promote sustainable transport within a school, a business or a residential development, with the main aim of reducing travel by single occupancy vehicles. A successful travel plan will give anyone travelling to or from their place of work, education or home a choice of travel options and encourage them to use the more sustainable ones. Effective travel plans will also include measures to manage parking on the site.
