About

Hello, I’m Rhian the Active Travel Officer for workplaces in Dumfries.me cropped

I’m working with staff at DGRI, the new hospital, Crichton Hall, The Willows and Cargen Tower. My aim is to help anyone thinking about commuting or travelling for business on foot or by bike to do just that. Check these pages for more details on events I’m running in your workplace.

How I can help: You tell me! Not sure if there’s a way to get from A to B without a car? I can provide: advice on walking or cycling routes, information on bus times, cycle training… Are there facilities or infrastructure improvements that would allow you to walk and cycle? Maybe you know a policy that could be improved to help make active travel part of your working day. Just let me know.

I can’t promise sunshine, but it’s a fact that there’s a 95% chance of NOT getting rained on, on your way to work.
