Workplace Sustainable Travel Fund (WSTF)

Businesses and organisations in Portsmouth can apply for up to £5,000 to support sustainable travel, for operational journeys and to help employees to walk and cycle to work.

The most significant source of air pollution in Portsmouth comes from road traffic. A high reliance on polluting motor vehicles for short trips has created a need to encourage cleaner travel options.

Creating a more sustainable future for your business can lower your operational costs and help you to deliver a healthier, happier future for your employees, for example:

  • Creating less demand for car parking spaces
  • Lowering operational costs by purchasing e-bikes, cargo bikes, pool bikes
  • Reducing the environmental footprint of your business
  • Employees can enjoy health benefits of walking and cycling
