Jam Busting - a fresh start?

Jam Busting - a fresh start?

Why not use September to help your employees make a fresh start to their commuting journeys? By changing from driving alone for as little as three days they're in with a chance to win one of many great prizes! September is a good time to try alternatives to driving alone. Perhaps your employees have enjoyed some cycling or walking over the summer and would like to fit this in to their daily routine? Maybe their kids are at a new school which changes what they can do? Perhaps they just want to save money? On past recent record September has been quite a dry sunny month too! And if participants like what they try they have the whole autumn to settle into a new habit.

To enter all individuals need to do is register at www.jambusting.com (the website will go live in mid-August, and you'll find the prizes listed) and complete an online diary during September. For every three days that commuters either cycle, walk, car share, motorcycle, use public transport or work from home, they will earn a free entry in the fabulous prize draw! They can go to the website for links and tips to help them get started and for a full explanation of the rules. If your employees don't have internet access they can still enter - call North Somerset Council's Travel Plan Team on 01934 426 962.

The website will have an area for company coordinators (if you optionally want to promote the event internally) to download resources such as posters and flyers, or you can order posters by calling 01934 426 962, as above. Please also contact the Travel Plan Team if your business would like to contribute a prize. These will be fully acknowledged on the website and will include your logo (as part of a revolving bank of logos) on the home page if it has a value of £100 or greater.
