Staff travel survey shows drop in driving

8 February 2008

Over 2800 members of University staff took part in the November 2007 travel to work survey.

Over 2800 members of staff took part in the November 2007 travel survey. The Travel to Work Implementation Group will carry out further detailed analysis of these results and the individual comments made by staff.

The results show that since 2005 there has been an 8% decrease in the number of people who usually travel to work by car, down to 21% of respondents. The number of the people who walk (30%) and cycle (12%) to work has increased slightly, with motorcycle and train use remaining stable. The percentage of staff traveling to work by bus has decreased slightly to 7%.

The Group are very grateful to all those who responded to the survey. The winners of the prize draw are:

  • Jenny Campion-Smith, Support Services;
  • Sara Baker, Department of Experimental Psychology;
  • Arthur Loza, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering;
  • Veronika Poor, Department of Earth Sciences.

Each of the winners has been awarded a £50 voucher of their choice.
