TRAVEL planners from York businesses are being given the chance to play their part in solving journey problems at an event in the city this week.

The networking session is being run through City of York Council’s iTravel York programme and will allow firms to swap ideas and look to team up on possible initiatives such as business parks, cycle challenges and shared parking.

The authority will also outline the incentives it offers to businesses wanting to promote sustainable travel among their workforce.

The event will be held at the Monk Bar Hotel between 8am and 11am on Friday. Speakers will include Lynn Cramman, travel plan co-ordinator for Cobalt Park, the UK’s largest business park, and Ginny Leonard, development officer for cycling charity CTC.
