Act TravelWise now has a new reduced membership rate of £250 + VAT for micro-businesses. To qualify, a business must not have more than four employees. The updated membership form includes the option to join at the new rate.
Act TravelWise maintains a 'group' on LinkedIn where you can post discussion items and announcements. This was traditionally an open group, but is being transformed into a resource exclusively for members. Members are very welcome to use this forum whether you are new to the sustainable transport/travel field or a more seasoned practitioner. To join the group, please click here. Non-members are encouraged to follow our LinkedIn company page instead.
The Act TravelWise Business Forum held its most recent meeting on Friday 9 September, which was used to progress plans on a number of fronts. A new membership prospectus for the private sector, in the form of a four-page brochure, was reviewed and is nearly ready for publication. Plans are underway for an autumn event to serve as a 'soft launch' for the Business Forum. It will be held in November at Heathrow Academy as a morning event with an EV bus tour in the afternoon.
Local authorities across the UK made a great start to the relaunched TravelWise Week, held 16-22 September 2017, held in parallel to European Mobility Week.
