Local Travel Plan
Hertfordshire IQ is leading an initiative to fast track the creation of a Maylands Area Travel Plan. The plan will capture short, medium and long term solutions and set out a time frame for delivery which will help improve public and sustainable transport for people getting to and around the Maylands employment area, supporting existing employers and businesses locating in Hertfordshire IQ.
It will cover bus services and routes, bike hire, cycling and walking routes, car share, electric car hire and digital solutions, for example, an app to request a bus.
