The 2017 Travel to Work Survey aims to encourage feedback on commuting and workplace travel from local employers and their staff.

Anyone wanting to get involved is asked to make a note of how they commute to work between Saturday, October 7, and Friday, October 13. They will then be invited to input the data into the online survey which runs from Monday, October 16, to Monday, October 23.

The survey is organised by Travel for Cambridgeshire (TfC), Cambridgeshire's largest sustainable travel association, led by transport professionals in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council and other local transport networks.

It aims to help businesses prepare and implement travel initiatives that promote and encourage sustainable commuting options such as cycling, walking, using public transport and car sharing.

The results of the survey will help to develop future transport initiatives for the county that help commuters to choose more sustainable and cost-effective options for travelling to work.

Any businesses wishing to take part in this year's survey should email: info@tfw.org.uk Businesses signed up will then be sent a link to the online survey, to be shared with staff.

Councillor Simon King, Fenland District Council's portfolio holder for transport, encouraged businesses in Fenland to get involved.

"The more people who take part in the survey, the better understanding partners will have of commuting habits and patterns in Fenland, and of the district's future travel needs."
