New Milton Park and Thames Travel partnership to Boost Sustainable Commutes

Commuters to Milton Park, a leading science, business and technology park in Oxfordshire, are set to benefit from improved bus services throughout 2024, following a renewed partnership.

Thames Travel has announced the new contract with Milton Park will enable it to increase the frequency and capacity of its services to Milton Park, in response to a growing demand for bus travel and the popularity of the Park’s £20 employee bus pass.

The news follows Milton Park’s survey of over 1,000 employees which, for the first time, found over 50 per cent were opting for more sustainable methods such as bus, bike and car sharing to travel to work, compared to single occupancy vehicles. The survey also found a significant 18% uplift in bus usage since the pandemic, enabled by Milton Park’s commitment to sustainable transport, ongoing partnerships with local providers and incentives such as the Park’s £20 employee bus pass.

“The latest survey shows people are becoming increasingly climate-conscious when choosing how they want to travel to Milton Park, with buses playing a significant role in that shift away from single occupancy car-usage. We know from the travel survey that the £20 bus pass has been particularly popular in this regard and provides excellent value for occupiers. With an improved frequency of services in 2024, Milton Park is delighted to renew its partnership with Thames Travel. The Park looks forward to seeing how employees and residents alike will benefit from these improved services in the new year, in the hope it will encourage even more people to leave their cars at home.” – Veronica Reynolds, Sustainability and Community Manager at Milton Park
