Airport workers at Gatwick are being offered a more sustainable commuting option in a new partnership between Gatwick Airport and low-cost bus service Zeelo. By targeting areas where Gatwick employees are currently poorly served by public transport, Gatwick Airport is hoping to increase the proportion of people travelling to work by sustainable means to 42% by 2020 and, in so doing, reduce congestion and carbon emissions. Currently, 61% of Gatwick employees drive to work.
The first shuttle bus service will operate between West Crawley and Gatwick North and South terminals, with additional routes in the pipeline. Ticket prices start at 88p per ride, for which passengers can expect a guaranteed seat, access to Wi-Fi and device charging points.
