The innovative and sustained strategy for green commuting which won for the Manchester Airport the Institute of Logistics and Transport's Award for Environmental Best Practice in Logistics and Transport in 2000 is the main focus of this article. The Green Commuter Plan was first implemented in October 1998. A range of tools used addresses car travel, travelling with others, bus, rail, two-wheeled travel and pedestrians. Also in the plan, are solutions for travel on business, and reducing car dependency by changing the way people work. Overarching these are the information, promotion and awareness campaigns, and, perhaps the most innovative aspect of the plan, the development of a smart card which will link all aspects of travel to work.
