Cycle to work schemes are employee benefit schemes available throughout the United Kingdom which can make it easier and cheaper for people to cycle to work. The Department has recently published refreshed guidance to employers on how to use them, and on other ways employers can encourage their staff to cycle to work. Department for Transport officials have regular discussions with their counterparts in the Devolved Administrations on policies to promote cycling and walking, and the Department will continue to look for opportunities to promote cycle to work schemes, working with the Devolved Administrations as appropriate.
