Travel behaviour change programs recognised

Programs to reduce work-related car trips and promote active forms of transport were among the winners of the TravelSmart Awards, presented this morning.

Programs to reduce work-related car trips and promote active forms of transport were among the winners of the TravelSmart Awards, presented this morning.

The awards recognise the outstanding achievements and contributions of workplaces and local governments engaged in travel behaviour change programs.

Department of Transport (DoT) Executive Director of Transport Policy and Systems, Brett Hughes commended this year’s winners for their outstanding efforts.

Winners of the five categories included:

  • Innovate - MBS Environmental for their Frequent Alternative Traveller (FAT) rewards scheme.
  • Build - City of Nedlands for the UWA student architecture bus shelter.
  • Plan - City of Joondalup for their Walkability Plan 2013-2018.
  • Achieve - Edith Cowan University for its ECU Transport Management Group.
  • Champion - City of Vincent, Mayor John Carey and City of Cockburn, TravelSmart Officer Katy Boschetti.

“It’s great to see local governments and workplaces taking up the challenge to do their bit to help decrease work-related car trips and contribute to reducing traffic congestion,” said Mr Hughes.

DoT supports a number of travel change programs that assist and encourage employers, schools, households and local government to choose active and sustainable travel modes such as cycling, walking and public transport more often.

“These travel behaviour change programs encourage participation and innovation which reduces congestion for everyone in our city. For example MBS Environmental, with support from the TravelSmart Workplace program, created the Frequent Alternative Traveller (FAT) Reward Scheme. The program provides cash incentives for staff to use other modes of transport such as riding, walking, jogging, public transport and carpooling for the work commute. Up to 75 per cent of staff are now participating in the FAT Scheme,” Mr Hughes said.

The TravelSmart Workplace program has assisted 69 workplaces over the past two years to prepare practical travel plans that helped over 15,600 employees to reduce their reliance on motor vehicles.

Mr Hughes said demand for the TravelSmart programs continued to grow and the programs were making a valuable difference to people’s travel decisions.
