has carried out the following projects:
Practice - National Campaigns
TTR has been at the forefront
of consultancy work on travel awareness issues. When DETR established its
travel awareness unit, TTR was commissioned to review best practice in co-ordinated
national campaigns in the UK and across Europe, and to recommend structures
for national campaign management.
European Practice - local transport schemes
TTR was involved in the
first European Commission transport initiative on travel awareness and marketing,
CAMPARIE. This initiative reviewed and recommended best practice in local
transport marketing actions such as new public transport schemes, traffic
calming, safer routes to school and so on. TTR has a database of over 100
European Practice - improving the environment
As part of a €3.7
million project (TAPESTRY),
TTR is managing demonstrations of travel awareness schemes in 12 countries.
Schemes cover campaigns to encourage multi-modal transport use, to change
the attitude of citizens towards cars and to address wider health and environment
issues. This project is being actively supported by DTLR.
practice - local Travelwise centres
TTR used focus groups
and a web-based questionnaire to assess customer perceptions of the services
and information provided by the Nottingham Travelwise Centre (the UKs
first mobility centre), and to consider future enhancements. We
also undertook a scooping study for a similar centre to serve the travel needs
of residents (and tourists) in Leicestershire.
practice-site-based awareness raising
TTR has developed green
travel plans for a considerable range of private and public sector organisations.
These include several large business parks, commercial companies including
BMW Group Plant Oxford and Boots, and educational and health establishments.
