Active transport initiatives recognised

Organisations and individuals delivering travel behaviour change initiatives have been recognised today at the TravelSmart Awards...

Organisations and individuals delivering travel behaviour change initiatives have been recognised today at the TravelSmart Awards, acknowledging the outstanding achievements and contributions of schools, workplaces and local governments in encouraging the use of active transport.

Department of Transport (DoT) Managing Director of Policy Planning and Investment, Graeme Doyle said it was great to see innovative and creative ways award winners were reducing car use in their communities and workplaces.

“Managing congestion in Perth is everyone’s responsibility and swapping some of the trips made by car with active transport options like walking, riding a bike and public transport, is all part of the plan to keep our city moving.”

“There are some fantastic examples from the TravelSmart Award winners of how they got their school, workplace or community involved and engaged in active transport.”

“The City of Vincent’s Bike Network Plan is helping improve bike riding infrastructure in the City, making it safer and more enjoyable for residents to ride in the area.”

“Capricorn Society used their office relocation to bring about a healthier workplace by encouraging staff to increase their active transport to get to work. This has resulted in staff reducing their car trips for work from 76 per cent to 22 per cent,” Mr Doyle said.

DoT supports a number of travel behaviour change programs that assist and encourage workplaces, schools, households and local government to choose active travel modes more often.

“We know that these travel behaviour programs are making a difference. In 2015 there was a 21 per cent increase in active transport use and an 8 per cent decrease in car trips in participating TravelSmart schools. This has an impact on school drop off and pickup traffic and makes the schools a safer environment for children,” Mr Doyle said.

Travel behaviour change programs will continue to complement a range of transport infrastructure plans that will keep the State moving into the future.
