Have the facts at your fingertips so you can assess your workplace’s accessibility with ease. Our in-depth travel options and scoping analysis shows you the direction and distance your staff have to commute, and helps you discover the best travel choices for your team.

What is scoping analysis?

Knowing how accessible your workplace is for your employees – how far they’re travelling and in which direction – can help you build a truly effective travel plan.

A travel options and scoping analysis uses specialist tools to assess key geographical information, including staff postcodes, heat maps, available travel methods and travel times, giving you an accurate picture of your employees’ commutes.

How can scoping analysis help my business?

Having a greater understanding of your staff’s travel options can:


Improve travel planning – helping you promote and encourage more sustainable behaviours.


Help identify the best office locations to meet staff travel needs, having a positive impact on staff travel patterns and retention.


Make car park management easier – including developing a parking policy and allocating parking permits.


Support the feasibility of planned changes – data and maps (up to A1 in size) make useful visual prompts for consultations.
