Advice on travelling to work

Here is some advice on the many ways you can travel to work to help us all stay safe and active, as well as protect our environment.


  • Plan ahead. Check your journey before you travel. How long will it take and familiarise yourself with the route. 
  • Agile working. Where possible, see if flexible working arrangements can be introduced or continued at your work to limit journeys being made on the transport network.
  • Stagger start and finish times. Are you and your colleagues able to stagger your start and finish times? Changing the times you travel, even by 10 or 20 minutes will help keep everyone moving and keep everyone safe. 
  • Walk and cycle where you can for shorter journeys. Find out how we’ve made it safer and easier for you to walk and cycle in Suffolk, including our new journey planner, cycle maintenance vouchers and top tips on bike security.
  • Use public transport for longer journeys. Visit to plan your journey by bus or train. Can you couple walking, cycling or scooting with public transport?
  • Keep your distance when you travel and wear a face mask on public transport.
  • Avoid the busiest routes as well as busy times like when schools finish and rush hours
