CWG’s transport strategy includes working with key organisations to improve public transport access to Canary Wharf and encourage forms of transport other than private cars, providing environmental, social and economic benefits. CWG encourages staff to use alternative methods when travelling to and from the estate. The Group operates the government backed ‘Cycle to Work’ scheme where staff can buy discounted cycles and pay over a period of time. In 2009, this scheme was extended to include the purchase of electric cycles. To encourage staff to use public transport, interest free season ticket loans are available and travel to meetings by cab is discouraged.
The Canary Wharf estate is extremely accessible and has good links with the underground, Docklands Light Railway, Riverboat Services and Crossrail will open in 2018 which will further improve transport capacity and efficiency. We also have a number of docking spaces for bikes, access to the Santander bicycle scheme and charging points for electric cars situated in the car parks of Canada Place and Jubilee Place.
