The Department will be launching the Cycle to Work Scheme on 1 May 2008 and The Royal Parks Agency introduced the scheme in June 2007. The Department also offers staff an interest free advance of salary to assist in the purchase of a bicycle if it is used for work. We do not centrally hold information on schemes run by our NDPBs.
