What is SmartGo Maylands?
SmartGo Maylands is a staff benefits package for Maylands Business Park that aims to incentivise the use of sustainable transport, such as buses, bikes, trains and Electric Vehicles, among employees based there.
Discounts are with a range of partners including Arriva, London Northwestern Railway, Centrebus, Halfords, Railcards, Enterprise and many others. Organisations can also make some big savings themselves on EV charging and cycle infrastructure. So, whoever you are, whether you're commuting or travelling for business or leisure, you could make big savings on sustainable transport!
Before staff can access the deals, employers first need register for annual membership. Maylands businesses can save 67% on the first year by using discount code MaylandsY1. Click below to join!
Why Has SmartGo Maylands Been Created?
It's part of a jointly-funded project with Dacorum Borough Council, The Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Hertfordshire County Council and St. Albans City and District Council, to implement a Sustainable Travel Plan for the area. The Plan will outline and implement tangible and viable schemes to encourage and support those who work on Maylands to consider other forms of transport instead of single-occupancy car journeys.
These initiatives will provide relief on parking and congestion issues across the area, whilst supporting a huge reduction in carbon footprints and promoting health & well being.
We've also created a Travel and Amenity Guide to help you make the most of Maylands Business Park.

Future Transport at Maylands
The A414 section on Breakspear Way currently serves as a severance to sustainable journey options to the Maylands Business Park from the Leverstock Green area and beyond. The new Quietway will run along Buncefield Lane south linking to a new toucan (cycle & pedestrian) signalised crossing the A414 between the two petrol filling stations. It then uses the newly built cycle facilities up to Boundary Way leading to the northern section of the Quietway on the northern section of Buncefield Lane. This will offer a safer and pleasanter journey for those cycling or walking for leisure or employment in the Maylands Business Park. The northern section of the Quietway will eventually provide improved links to the Nickey Line a disused railway route running through the Maylands Business park and used as a pedestrian and cycle route.
The scheme also includes a reduction in the speed limit on Breakspear Way from 70mph to 50mph. This will complement a series of pedestrian and cycling improvements to increase travel choice, reduce congestion and improve the resilience of the local transport network. These include the new footway and cycle route along Redbourn Road, a new pedestrian and cycle crossing on Redbourn Road, proposed footway improvements on Three Cherry Trees Lane and planned improvements to Nickey Line access on Eastman Way.
