A FREE bus scheme has been launched by Birchwood Park.

Birchwood Park has launched the free bus scheme as part of its commitment to Net Zero, the park says.

Available as a free bus travel ticket via the business park's 'Parklif'e app, the free bus scheme is a brand-new service, available exclusively to businesses and staff based on Birchwood Park.

Birchwood Park’s commercial director, Martin O’Rourke, said: “The free bus scheme is something we have had in the pipeline for a long time now.

“Not only will our occupiers and their employees be offered a greener way to travel to work each day, but the free bus scheme has also been created to support existing occupiers in their recruitment and retainment, making it easier for new and existing staff-based locally to get to work without a vehicle."

He added: "This is a much-needed step in the right direction for our park, to ensure we are on track towards becoming Net Zero in all our managed areas and buildings by 2030 and aiming to be Net Zero in all our occupier managed buildings by 2040."

Birchwood Park also offers several other sustainable travel options, as part of its award-winning travel plan.

This includes an online car share platform, electric vehicle travel stations and extensive facilities for cyclists in the area.
