Active City Network

Safer commuting

As there are over 513,000 employees registered in the City of London the Road Danger Reduction Team continue to prioritises business engagement.

The Active City Network (ACN) aims to engage City employers in the development of initiatives to support safer commuting, giving ACN members the opportunity to contribute to the Road Danger Reduction Partnership and shape future campaigns, transport management strategies and physical infrastructure changes.

Through the ACN, businesses can receive free training and incentives for their employees to enjoy a safer, more active journey to work:

  • Access to networking events and best practice
  • Business road shows and presentations
  • Cycle skills training
  • Lunchtime Streets.

Be Brake Ready campaign

Be Brake Ready is one of several campaigns aiming to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries in the City. It sets out four simple principles that everyone who travels in the Square Mile can follow to stay safe.

Whether you are usually a driver, cyclist, motorcyclist, a pedestrian, or a combination, remember these principles and play your part in the mission to save lives and prevent serious injuries.

We hope you will support us by spreading the #BeBrakeReady message.
