When are we actually going to stop encouraging people to drive everywhere?

The company I work for estimates that providing car parking spaces for employees to commute to work by car costs £1000 p.a. per space. That’s obviously a hidden subsidy to car commuters, and paid for by the customers.
The question is, why is a similar benefit not available to people who use a zero carbon commute?

It can be a way to combine both health and wealth in a more frequent way. Getting some healthy exercise when possible at the same time as saving gas money. Since it is good for the planet the whole movement is part of sustainable development. How do I get going?
