What We Do


Free expert advice, tailored support and grants of up to £5,000 are available to help West Yorkshire employers support more staff cycling to work, which will play a vital role in meeting the transport challenge created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Combined Authority’s Bike Friendly Business scheme, part of its CityConnect programme aimed at encouraging more people to travel by bike and on foot, has been made easier for businesses to access.

This work is part of a package of emergency measures to help people move around the region safely. This includes significant short and longer-term proposals, which have been submitted to Government in order to access £12.5 million funding through the recently announced Emergency Active Travel Fund, and an online map for residents to highlight areas where improvements are needed to help more people travel by bike or on foot.

By signing up to the scheme organisations can access expert advice on a range of topics, from route information to introducing a Cycle to Work scheme.

Grants of up to £5,000 for items such as bike parking, pool bikes and lockers are also available.

The scheme is already supporting more than 300 organisations to become places where travelling by bike is the easiest and most convenient option, with bronze, silver and gold accreditation for employers going the extra mile.
