East Lothian Council Travel Plan

Case Studies > East Lothian Council Travel Plan

In 2017, we developed a travel plan for East Lothian Council and in 2020, updated this plan. The evidence-based strategy was designed to help East Lothian Council generate more sustainable commuter travel patterns.

The central aim of the completed work was to facilitate a reduction in single-occupancy car travel for commuter journeys by all council staff.

The development of the travel plan was informed by a range of information, including details about how commuters typically travel to work at selected council sites, as well as the accessibility of these sites when travelling by different modes. The information was sourced by way of a desktop review, staff survey, selected interviews and site visits.

Our final report provided a detailed set of recommendations that – when implemented – will help and encourage employees to use active and sustainable modes of transport on their commuter journeys.
