New ‘Modeshift TDM Award’ Nominations are live! 

In 2020, Mott MacDonald was appointed as a strategic TDM advisor to the Department for Transport and provided TDM support to English local authorities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to help to get pupils back to education, within the constraints of reduced public transport capacity.  The programme was then extended to enable support to be provided for return of commuter and leisure trips as COVID restrictions eased. A Travel Demand Management toolkit was also prepared (Travel Demand Management Toolkit – Managing Network Demand (publishing.service.gov.uk)) to help local authorities develop demand management strategies to help to plan for and manage the return of trips for education, commuting and leisure purposes as COVID-19 restrictions were lifted.  The toolkit also helps local authorities to manage any future challenges they face trying to match transport demand with supply during times of uncertainty, increased pressure and change in the longer term.

To recognise their great work during challenging circumstances and to encourage LTAs to maintain their TDM activity, DfT and Mott MacDonald have introduced a new Modeshift TDM Award to recognise participating authorities for their TDM activity.

To nominate a project, simply download and complete the Modeshift TDM Award Nomination Form 2021 and send it to travelawards@modeshift.org.uk.

Nominations will close on Friday 17th September with finalists being notified in early October.

 

Nominations are closed for the 2021 Modeshift National Sustainable Travel Awards

The Modeshift National Sustainable Travel Awards recognise Modeshift Members and Partners for their outstanding contributions to increasing levels of sustainable and active travel.

Organisations are invited to nominate initiatives they have been involved with, or that have been undertaken in their area, that demonstrate best practice, innovation, and can prove impact. Nominations may include projects targeting businesses, education establishments or communities.

Awards Categories:

Best Partnership

This award recognises and celebrates the efforts being made by individuals and groups to work in partnership with education providers, businesses and community groups, to promote and encourage sustainable travel.

Best Project Under £1,000

This award recognises budget busting projects and initiatives that have cost less than £1,000. Nominations will be accepted from organisations that have made a contribution of less than £1,000 to deliver a successful sustainable travel project or initiative. Working on a low budget, you have to negotiate and work with ‘who you know…’ therefore any ‘payment in kind’, sponsorship or other financial contribution could be used to ‘start up’ the project and does not need to be included in the £1,000. However, the contribution will need to be detailed in the nomination and must show how the project will be sustained without the additional support.
