BIGHERTSBIGIDEASFORBUSINESS is an initiative to encourage your business to develop a transport strategy or travel plan with the aim of promoting more efficient and sustainable ways of travelling and working in Watford, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.

Developing a transport strategy or travel plan can:

  • save your business money
  • improve the health and well-being of your staff
  • reduce your environmental impact
  • enhance your reputation as a good employer
  • improve relations with neighbouring residents and businesses 

As a result, many organisations in the UK are managing their transport needs as an integral part of their overall business strategy.

The BIGHERTSBIGIDEAS Business Network gives your business:

  • up to a day's free access to practical advice from travel planning experts
  • special discounts for employees from major local transport operators (eg Arriva, CentreBus, First Capital Connect)
  • free access to the hertsliftshare.org car sharing database
  • access to partner organisations offering cycle training & repair and retail offers for staff
  • regular network newsletters, events and a members-only group on Linkedin
  • specialist analysis tools including GIS mapping of employee locations (analysis taking more than a day may be chargeable) 
  • an accreditation scheme for engaged businesses
