BBC to offer Salford staff training on local transport

The BBC is offering employees relocating from London a full day’s training to help them acclimatise with transport systems in the North West.

As reported by The Telegraph, employees will learn about parking and cycling provisions, the Metrolink system and local bus services.

The programme will also allow staff to drop-in and learn about the Salford area and gain knowledge from local "experts".

Sessions have already taken place in London, and the BBC have said the programme has been well attended.

A BBC spokesman said: "As with any large-scale relocation, providing people who are moving with information about local transport and infrastructure is standard practice to ensure that they have the most relevant and up-to-date information so that they can effectively and efficiently plan their travel arrangements.”

According to The Telegraph, the internal programme cost nothing to put together and local experts who travelled to London for the sessions were unpaid.
