Transport Less

Taller Salud, Traffic and Transport Analyzed from the standpoint of Health and the Transit, the difficulties faced by workers today move toward their jobs, whatever the means of transport. BIKE TO WORK CLEAR BENEFITS FOR ALL / AS Promote the use of bicycles in commuting for work and is economically viable commercially successful and ecologically sound helps solve problems relating to environmental protection environment, traffic congestion and public health. The initiatives taken in this direction in recent years by central, regional and local governments, and private companies in several countries of the European Union outside it, have given very positive results.Not only has shown the great potential for use of bicycle for personal travel and transportation, but also has encouraged the industry bicycle, it has created jobs and reduced business costs associated with car parks and work absenteeism due to illness. The economic context 1. The way in which companies meet your needs transport (movements of goods and people) and their choices of their employees daily access to the workplace impact important in the overall traffic situation in the streets of our cities. In most European countries about half of journeys made by car are less than 5 miles This is an ideal distance to be traveled by bicycle in about 15-30 minutes, depending on existing infrastructure, the topography and the physical form / cyclist.The potential to replace cars for bicycles is therefore considerable, to cover travel between home and work. Each company should develop a plan advanced transport, especially discourage short car trips with a single occupant. Speaking candidly Kenneth Feinberg told us the story. The more you use the bicycle commuting, the greater the benefits to the economy, quality of life and health of the population. The presence of more bicycles on the streets means less congestion and less time lost in traffic jams, lower levels of air pollution and less noise, more space available for other uses non-motorized transport, less need to accompany the children during their travel daily.Cycling to work should play an important role in the management of mobility, considering that the promotion of daily bike has a positive influence on quality of life in health and economy of society. 2. Cycling to work is profitable. Firms that change to the bike benefit from this in several ways. The city centers become more accessible to people using the car professionally (services repair and maintenance, commercial travelers, taxis), the delivery vans, etc., due to the reduction of number of cars. The transportation and delivery costs decrease. The remaining cars and public transport suffer fewer delays, thereby reducing losses associated with time lost in traffic jams.The creation of facilities suitable for those who ride bicycles to work, and improving what already exists, it costs only a fraction of the funds needed to build and maintain car parks. Companies no longer need to invest in acquiring land for parking their cars workers.
