Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is a holding a workshop at the University of Manchester on 4 April to help companies promote sustainable travel and increase cycling in their workforce.
The two-hour event has been designed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for cycling information to help businesses increase the number of employees commuting by bike and the number of short business trips made using sustainable transport methods.
It will include an electric bike demonstration and information on exclusive equipment discount, sustainable travel grants for facilities like showers and cycle storage areas, and how to organise cycling events in the workplace.
Chris Taylor, from TfGM’s Travel Choices team, said: “Cycling is a great way for companies to introduce sustainable travel.
“For relatively little outlay, the benefits are really impressive, including savings on car parking spaces, more resilience when faced with problems on roads, rail or trams and a healthier, more productive workforce.”
The workshop is being held at the Simon Building at the University of Manchester from 10am-12pm on 4 April. To book your place, click here.
