We also offer some employers the option to take part in our Commuter Travel Club

'FTS are invariably efficient and responsive' - Jack Peat, Capita

The challenge

Internet-based retailers and large retail and grocery warehouse facilities have found it challenging to support employees with their travel to work.

Public transport services are often not operating near enough to sites or at times that suit the shift work of many organisations.

There is a need to provide bespoke journeys for employees of many of these businesses.


The solution

First Travel Solutions have a network of vehicles across the UK, that are quality checked and established.  Our geographical coverage with our own bus fleet and our compliance regime for sub-contractors gives access to all sizes and types of vehicles.

This allows the team to create bespoke travel arrangements for the different employers' needs.

Connecting local towns and communities to numerous regional logistics centres with inbound and outbound journeys to feed into and out of local shift patterns.

This offers maximum flexibility on service timing and new routes.

Each solution is delivered bespoke to the employers using our expert team at FTS and the software systems we have developed in-house.

We can and do operate staff services across most cities and counties of the UK.


The result

A bespoke transport solution providing access to employment for non-car users in areas traditionally unserved by public transport.

They are delivered on both free-to-user (fully employer subsidised) and passenger contribution (employer subsidised) models.

We have worked with household names such as Lidl, Waitrose, Royal Mail, Pertemps, and Tesco, to name a few.
