Ways to Work
Year End UpdateThe majority of targets were exceeded for 2011/12. Working with 2 Shires Credit Union has helped beneficiaries to save and purchase their bikes at the end of the loan period, and a new arrangement with Groundwork has resulted in Ways to Work being able to purchase reconditioned bikes for a fraction of the cost. Rural Action Derbyshire has also been successful in securing funding from Derbyshire County Council, Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Bolsover District Council to enable Ways to Work to continue into 2012/13.

About the project...

Ways to Work is a cross-cutting transport project where many elements of transport provision are brought together to remove transport as a barrier to work and training.  It aims to provide transport opportunities, and/or easy to understand information on available transport options.  This enhances existing Wheels to Work provision in Bolsover, through the provision of additional services including push bike and electric bike loan, taxi/bus vouchers, subsidised driving lessons, personalised travel planning and better access to information about transport.
