TRAVEL PLAN PLUS stands for "Travel Reduction Attainment Via Energy-efficient Localities PLANning".
The Problem: A travel plan is a package of measures tailored to the needs of individual organisations and aimed at promoting greener, cleaner travel choices and reducing reliance on the car. Unlike the traditional approach to addressing transport problems of providing more capacity, travel plans can be quick, cheap, effective and popular. Yet they remain uncommon. This is because they rely on organisations to help solve a problem that is not usually a core concern.
The Solution: To establish a local group or Local Travel Plan Network (LTPN) of organisations to share resources and ideas for developing and implementing a travel plan in their area.
The Aim: The project aimed to promote energy efficiency across the EU by creating four Local Travel Plan Networks in representative locations and by promoting their use more widely. Click here to find out more.
The Partners: TRAVEL PLAN PLUS comprises six partners from Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK. There were four implementation sites: Györ, Bages, Stockholm and Cambridge, whilst Loughborough University and Mobycon were expert partners. Click here to find out more about the Consortium.
