Travel Plan: Walking

Walking is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get around, keep active and become healthier. It can also help to reduce traffic congestion, lower your carbon footprint and is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active.

Business and Walking

Transport for Greater Manchester has numerous schemes and incentives in place for those who choose to walk. The ‘Walking Workplaces’ initiative involves working with walking partners and a network of businesses across the region to promote walking. Promotional events, lunchtime led walks and encouraging businesses to increase staff activity levels by decreasing car dependency.

A link to the Working Workplaces toolkit can be found on the right, providing a step by step guide that can be tailored to an individual’s requirements and situation.
