Walking and cycling to and at workplaces

As major trip generators, large workplaces will be key targets for certain Active Access application cities. Tartu, for example, plans a social mobility contest for employees of large organisations. In Annecy, awareness campaigns targeted at local trips for works’ business will be used to encourage staff to walk and cycle to nearby meetings and restaurants at lunchtimes. The long term post-project effect will be reduced car- and energy-use for these trips. Koprivnica also will focus on home to work trips. However, unlike in most home-to-work-trip projects, it is planned to focus mainly on health arguments in favour of walking and cycling; and to deal with trips for business purposes, as well as trips to and from work.
