Can you do business without a car?

Tom Bailey, a senior surveyor with GVA, decided to put sustainable transport in and around Tyne and Wear to the test.

Could he fulfil a busy diary of business meetings and site visits using a bicycle, bus and Metro rather than a car?

Find out how he got on through this link to his diary, published by BQ magazine.

Tom explains that more and more clients want to know how well connected potential new business locations are by public transport and cycle routes – they know many potential employees will want to travel without relying on a car.

This drove him to find out for himself. Nexus and Go North East provided travel passes to help him on his way.
