We are committed to promoting and facilitating travel to our sites by alternatives to sole occupancy cars. We're well regarded for our travel planning which started n 2003 with an initial travel plan for a 5 year period.
Since then we have produced our Travel Plan 2009-13. Currently we are working on an update of this document which we hope to launch in the near future.
In 2007 The University undertook a comprehensive travel survey of staff and students based at its Derby sites. Around 1,300 responses were received. The responses to this survey were used to shape developments in travel, including changes to car parking and the Unibus, as seen in the Travel Plan.
In 2010, a further survey was undertaken, which provided an excellent picture of our positive progress in promoting sustainable travel.
Most recently we completed the 2013 Survey. Once again a strong response has enabled us to see that most of our progress has been sustained and in many areas our use of sustainable travel has grown still further.
