Info on travelling and support with staff travel into Avonmouth and Severn Beach

Sustrans is the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. They are offering  free help for people to travel to work in the Avonmouth and Severnside area on foot, by bike and via public transport / liftsharing.

We offer the following free services:

Borrow a bike

We have launched a free bike loan service. People travelling into the Avonmouth and Severnside area can borrow a bike completely free of charge for up to 3 months. Please promote widely to your clients if they are having issues getting to work or want to avoid the train/bus into our area. Download the poster here.

Personal travel planning

If your clients tell us where they are travelling from and to, and their level of cycle confidence – we will provide them with route options, maps and travel advice. This is via phone, email, skype or zoom. Download the poster here.

Information and resources

Our website includes videos on safe commuting, bike maintenance, walking and cycling maps of the area, digital walking and cycling routes linked to GIS, links to timetables and other inspiration and advice. We also have an area for business support.

We have travel information sheets by area for:

· Western Approach Industrial Area

·  Avonmouth

Due to reductions in public transport provision and use, plus the current need to be socially distanced, we hope to support safe and sustainable travel for job-seekers and employees.

Please contact Alexa Bingham if you have any ideas about how we could collaborate, or if you’d like to request future resources.
