Abstract Background:<\b>
Workplace travel plans are a commonly used measure to promote active travel to workplaces. In Ireland, there is little research carried out on the strategies used to implement successful workplace travel plans.Objectives: To identify the perceived elements of successful workplace travel plans and to develop a set of recommendations to help implement these plans with long-term effectiveness in the future. Methods:<\b>
Ten semi-structured interviews were conducted from various workplace sites across Ireland. Interviewees consisted of project coordinators, active travel advocates, policy-influencers and senior management. Data saturation was reached after ten interviews and grounded theory was used to conduct the thematic content analysis. Results:<\b>
The potential impact of workplace travel planning is mitigated by a strong driving culture in Ireland. This is particularly evident outside the major cities. Workplaces need better examples of successful demonstration projects in settings which reflect diversity in population density, transport infrastructure and workplace type. A ‘one-size fits all’ suite of policy measures will not work in all workplaces. Key elements of a successful project include having the commitment and investment from senior management, implementing parking management strategies and collaborating with the local community, businesses and local authorities. Conclusion:<\b>
There is a need to establish an evidence base for inter-sectoral workplace travel planning in regions with lower population density and with poorer transport infrastructure. Workplaces should receive training on collaborative work practices and on implementing a broader suite of active travel measures specific to their workplace setting.
