Travel Plans are site-specific transport strategies that aim to increase opportunities for using active transport (walking and cycling), public transport and innovative approaches to car travel such as car share and car-pooling. Travel Plans provide an administrative platform for greater coordination between property managers, users and public transport service providers.
Because Travel Plans become part of the administrative procedures of organisations, a wide range of administrative and organisational options can be leveraged that are often overlooked in other transport planning approaches.
This program is particularly useful for:
- Local Council Officers responsible for regulating local transport and access requirements.
- State and Federal Government transport professionals responsible for transport policy.
- Sustainability Officers responsible for improving organisational sustainability.
- Property Developers & Managers looking for ways to improve the sustainability and cost effectiveness of new developments.
- Transport Consultants wanting to broaden client services.
- Travel Managers responsible for managing organisational transport and site access.
Program topics include:
- Travel Plan Methodology
- Travel Behaviour Change strategies
- Sustainable Transport Principles
- Effective communication with decision-makers in business and government
- Regulatory frameworks for Travel Plans
- Monitoring and Evaluation
- Applying Travel Plans to different sites (eg. workplace and mixed-use residential precincts)
- Promoting Travel Plan initiatives.
This two-day course enables participants to learn-by-doing through a series of interactive exercises that provide instruction on applying the Travel Plan methodology to a range of different sites (workplace and mixed-use residential). It provides insights and approaches to effective communication with key decision-makers, specifying Travel Plans as part of the regulatory requirements for development consent and on-going management, monitoring and evaluation.
