Encouraging sustainable travel to, from and for work has many benefits in the workplace. Way to Work helps workplaces in Scotland to support staff to travel by foot, bike, public transport or car share.
Way to Work showcases offers from nine active and sustainable travel organisations, linking directly to their websites for more information. These organisations offer a range of support to encourage active and sustainable travel for commuting and business travel. It also features case studies and the latest sustainable travel news.
This is a signposting website – clicking on an offer will open a new window, taking you directly to where you can find more information on each provider’s site.
We want to make it easier for you to find sustainable transport solutions for your workplace. We welcome your feedback as we continue to develop Way to Work.

CoMoUK aims to develop the use of shared transport and encourage people to consider using these options to travel rather than their own cars. Shared transport at its most simple means you either share the journey or share the mode of transport. This can mean ride sharing, car clubs or bike sharing. We support and advise anyone interested in shared transport.visit partner website
