The University of Leicester is ranked in the top one per cent of universities in the world by the Times Higher Education (THE). The University wanted to identify changes over the last five years in travel behaviour to evaluate how they and other key transport stakeholders could further reduce car use and carbon emissions going forward.
Go Travel Solutions conducted a review of the University’s Travel Plan including a University-wide staff and student survey, carbon calculations, GIS mapping of postcode data for bus, walk and cycle routes and advice on data capture.
The Travel Survey highlighted the potential for greater use of sustainable travel by staff and students with over 100 staff, who are existing single car drivers, expressing a willingness to travel more sustainably to work.
"We used Go Travel Solutions to carry out a thorough staff and student travel survey to inform the next phase of our travel plan. We threw everything at them – tough timescales, last minute meetings, a hard to reach audience, tight budget and a demanding brief – and they delivered everything we needed and more.
We are never disappointed when working with Go Travel Solutions and would recommend them to anyone who needs to leave their project in capable hands whilst they go and fight fires elsewhere. You’ll get more than you bargained for (in a good way!)."
