Reduced costs

Our Eco-Business Driving scheme helped companies by reducing fuel and accident related costs. It was completely free and delivered through our expert advisors, helping to reduce costs, improve safety and lessen the impact of a business on the local environment.

“All 23 of our drivers that took part in the Eco-Business Driving training gave excellent feedback and our initial figures are showing an increase of approximately 5% on miles per gallon achieved by our vehicles. That’s almost a £2,500 saving on our yearly fuel spend and almost 2,000 litres less fuel.”
“On top of the fuel savings, we anticipate further savings on maintenance costs and especially tyres on the 16 vans that we currently use. As an incentive to our drivers we are appointing a monthly fuel champion for the driver showing the biggest increase in MPG, with a prize of a high street shopping vouchers.”
"After I took part in the free trial I sold my car and now use the bus regularly to get to and from work."

Save time

Travelling by public transport also gives you back the time you would lose sitting behind the wheel of your car. By letting the tram, train or bus carry you in to work, you can email, text, surf the web or catch up with friends on social media.

"It was really easy to get involved...the Advisors did all the hard work and were at the end of the phone if we ever needed support. They also provided us with a live departure feed that we displayed in our reception area, so our employees can walk to the bus stop just as their bus is due so there is less waiting time."
"I benefitted by being able to send emails/texts whilst travelling, this saved me time in the morning. On my journey to work I had time to read a book! I never get spare time to read. I now use the bus when I don’t fancy sitting in traffic and getting stressed, I just let someone else do the driving and disappear into my book and music."
"I’ve now found that I’m using the bus service a lot more than I’ve ever done before. The “live bus time” web-link which I use via my mobile phone is fantastic and very reliable, and that alone is one of the reasons that I now catch the bus more frequently."

Improve your health

There are many health benefits to adopting a sustainable journey to work. Using public transport removes a vehicle from the road, switching to an electric vehicle produces no tailpipe emissions and walking is can help boost your energy levels.

“It’s great to go for a walk at lunch time to have a break away from the office environment, it gives you time to chat to work colleagues and get some fresh air at the same time.”
"My confidence has grown, and I feel so much better for it. Going by bike mixes up and changes the dynamics of going to work. It feels more rewarding and less mundane and you definitely arrive at work with more energy."
"Many of our employees travel to work from different areas such as Barnsley, Pontefract, Rotherham, and Sheffield and with limited car parking spaces available we wanted to make people aware of the alternative travel options available. As a business, we take our employees’ health and wellbeing seriously and the Busboost initiative has been a resounding success for the employees taking part."
