STAGING GREENER JOURNEYS
Sustainable travel is better for the environment and for our roads and Pinewood promotes the use of sustainable modes of transport to and from the studios for visitors, staff and clients.
We encourage staff, clients, visitors, production employees and local residents to make use of the shuttle bus service to and from local train and underground stations. The service is completely free to use and at peak times, provides a service up to every 10 minutes.
This not only helps reduce CO2 emissions, it also helps ease congestion in the local area and improve the local air quality by replacing cars. Pinewood also supports local schools with use of the shuttle buses for school trips.
This one initiative takes over 100,000 car journeys off the road each year.
In addition, the travel plan provides:
- A new shared footpath and cycleway outside Pinewood Studios
- Electric vehicle charging points at Pinewood and Shepperton Studios
- Electric vehicles and bikes used on site by Pinewood maintenance and ground staff
- Bi-annual bike services for those that travel to work by bike
