Apathy

The Executive's staff travel survey makes an interesting (skim) read; SE deserves credit for publishing it - lets see how many of its agencies follow suit.

Essentially, unless there are real incentives (or sticks) to encourage people to switch transport mode, only the evangelists will do it (disgruntled cyclist from silverknowes). First class rail travel and flights are regarded as little perks in a public administration, where the power of the traditional penny pinching administrator is much reduced (not necessarily a bad thing).

A bit of education can help, people often perceive barriers, which on further examination look fallacious - e.g. reasons not to use subsidised season tickets (guys you can use them evenings, holidays and w/es!).
