Access to Bridgwater is great, but like many towns rush hour traffic can slow the journey down.


Investment is being made into Bridgwater to help organisations help their employees have a cheaper, quicker and healthier commute to work. Cycling, walking or car sharing are just some of the alternatives that help save time, money and reduce travel stress. There are many ways to cut the cost of travel, speed up your journey and boost fitness and wellbeing.


Leave the car at home, walk or cycle and save £248 per year*!


My two miles to work used to take me eleven minutes on four wheels, now it’s eight minutes on two wheels!


Not only save time but get fit and stay healthy with a gentle twice-a-day work-out by simply walking or cycling to and from work. Leaving your car at home can help to lower blood pressure, help you lose weight, reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, strengthen muscles, improve co-ordination and boost self esteem.


We have some fantastic routes to walk or cycle to work and we are planning more.  To plan your routes visit The Route. You can even beat the traffic queues if you combine bus and train travel with walking or cycling. Foldaway bikes are perfect for using at both ends of your journey.

Car sharing


Share your journey with one buddy and save £124 per year*!
