Area wide travel planning wins business over in Sussex, Surrey and elsewhere
The Easit network is probably the largest travel plan network in the country and was set up with the help of local authorities. By bringing together employers in specific area, it benefits from strength in numbers. It can provide travel planning services cheaply and has managed to negotiate discounts on rail and bus tickets as well as at local cycle shops. Through a strong brand, promotional materials and local events it has generated a high level of awareness and behaviour change, helping to reduce congestion. In 2011 it was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, Sustainable Development.
