Scottish Workplace Journey Challenge launched

Last Updated: 3/12/2018

Sustrans Scotland is encouraging people to travel more actively to work by inviting them to join the Scottish Workplace Journey Challenge. Funded by Transport Scotland. The free, month-long Challenge helps to inspire people to travel in ways that benefit their health, wellbeing and the environment. Workplaces from across Scotland will compete against each other to see who can clock up the most walking, cycling, public transport and car-sharing journeys between 1–31 March, in a bid to win more than £2,000 worth of prizes. Participants will use an online platform to log their sustainable journeys and compete to climb a leader board. They will have access to feedback on how many calories they’ve burned and the amount of money they’ve saved on each journey by choosing healthy, green and cheap alternatives to driving. Individual challengers will also be judged on the number of journeys they complete while workplaces are judged on the overall rate of participation in the team. Read more:

How do we address the low numbers of women travelling actively in the UK?

Last Updated: 3/12/2018

Gender inequality remains a big issue when it comes to active travel in the UK, says Sustrans. The charity has published a new report, ‘Are We Not There Yet?, revealing that women’s journeys around cities are typically shorter than men’s, use different modes of transport and are more likely to involve ‘trip-chaining’ (multi-stop journeys) which tend to be for a balance of child care, work and household responsibilities. While women are motivated to travel actively for physical and mental health reasons, worries about their personal safety, convenience (particularly when taking multi-stop trips) and appearance are all barriers to preventing them from cycling and walking, says the report. It looked at the travel habits and choices of nearly 2,000 women in Glasgow and combined the findings with a literature review of research on women’s travel patterns across Scotland, the UK and Europe. The report also highlighted that few women are involved in creating transport policy and planning in the UK. Currently, transport has the lowest percentage of women in senior posts within the public sector in Scotland, with women representing only 6.25% heads of transport bodies. In addition, the transport sector accounts for only 22% of female workers UK-wide. Read the full report here:
