The Centre of Excellence for the Delivery of Effective Travel Plans
Modeshift STARS is the Centre of Excellence for the delivery of Effective Travel Plans in Education, Business and Community settings. The STARS Community scheme recognises organisations that have shown excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable and active travel.
The STARS Community scheme was developed on the back of the success of STARS Education and launched officially in April 2019. As of January 2020, there are 24 local authorities in England that use the system to develop and monitor Residential Travel Plans for their areas, using the accreditation element to recognise the delivery of effective Travel Plans.
Modeshift STARS offers National Accreditation for sites that have demonstrated best practice in the implementation of their Travel Plan. Sites are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold accreditation, with Silver and Gold reserved only for those sites that achieve a reduction in single-occupancy car journeys to/from their site.
