For Employers

Help your Employees join in the Travelwest Challenge

Anyone working or living in the West of England can take part in this 6-week challenge which rewards people who travel to work by walking, cycling, lift-sharing or using public transport.

Businesses and organisations have found that encouraging staff to travel more sustainably has contributed positively to a healthier workforce, less absenteeism, and improved productivity. See Travelwest for essential evidence.

Last year, hundreds of businesses signed up and thousands of staff competed to see who could reach the top of the leaderboard and the winner organisations of Travelwest Challenge 2019 will be invited to attend the Travelwest Awards later in the year to receive their certificate!

We’ll also provide the winning organisations with a £100 voucher to donate to a charity of their choice.

The Travelwest Challenge runs from Monday 10 June - 21 July 2019 for 6 weeks.

Last year’s winners were:

  • Micro: Key Transport Consultants
  • Small: Transport Planning Associates
  • Medium: Triodos Bank
  • Large: DAC Beachcroft
