Sustainable Travel for Businesses

Implementing sustainable travel measures can bring a range of benefits to a business; whether it’s reducing the cost of mileage claims or running a fleet, through to improving the health, productivity & morale of your workforce through active travel.

Getabout can assist in a range of ways whether it’s providing advice to help you develop a Travel Plan for your organisation in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire, or supporting your business to implement sustainable measures through Travel Grants and Trials from our partners.

Preparing a plan

Travel Planning

Do you want your business to save money and have healthy, motivated staff? Then Travel Planning can help.

As part of our Covid-19 response Short to Medium Term Guidance has been produced. This will be updated as guidance and restrictions change.

As workplaces and employees navigate their way through these difficult and uncertain times Travelknowhow Scotland is keen to offer support to Scottish workplaces to plan for a new, greener normal.

Way To Work Scotland is also good place to start and has information on lots of funding and training resources that are available to organisations.


Travelknowhow Scotland is delivering a series of FREE travel planning workshops. Find out more in the News section.
