III.GENERAL FEATURES OF THE MOVE
Given the high cost of office space in the city centre, the company will be relocated to the new Sunnydale Business park on the outskirts of the city in January next year. This move will provide more spacious facilities. The park will be a source of fresh air and give the workers a chance to do sports in the new premises. Furthermore, the workers will have larger office buildings and office rooms. In addition, there will be a chance to build a new auditorium in the park.
Despite these benefits, a major issue is the lack of public transport links to the business park. Most of the workers stated that they did not know how they can get to new the offices. Therefore, we were asked by the senior management  to write a report on this issue.

IV. TRANSPORT OPTIONS TO THE NEW LOCATION
This data is based on my experience of travelling from the city in my car, and on online research and telephone interviews with the local council and train and bus companies.

1.CAR AND PRIVATE TRANSPORT
The Sunnydale Business Park is approximately 30 kilometers from the city centre. The location has easy access by motorway to the city centre, although there is heavy traffic at rush hours. Public transport to the Sunnydale Park is very limited. The staff could take private cars. However, the gasoline will be costly for workers. To solve this problem a car sharing scheme will be used.

2.CAR –SHARING SCHEME
Due to the fact that many staff will now be using their cars to get to work, we recommend that the company provides staff with some incentives to set up a car-sharing scheme. This would be a very cost-effective, flexible option for many staff.
This solution should be closely monitored and reviewed after three months in order to evaluate its effectiveness.

3.TRAIN SERVICES
The nearest train stations are in Havington and Pachett. Havington is six kilometres away. Trains run every 30 minutes to this station. Pachett  is only four kilometres away, but the service is less frequent, with trains stopping once an hour.

4. BUS SERVICES
There are currently no bus services from the city centre to the new premises.

5.TAXI OR SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE
Given the distance from the train stations to the business park, the company could provide a morning and evening shuttle bus or taxi service to and from Havington and Pachett train stations. The timetable of the shuttle bus would be integrated with the train times from the station.

CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
The fact that almost a third of staff (98 people) do not know how they will travel to the new location is a major concern for them and the company. It can be concluded that the company will need to help staff with transport arrangements. To do nothing would adversely affect staff morale, and there is a risk that some staff would leave the company due to the relocation.
