Your Move programs
About Your Move
Your Move is a Department of Transport program that helps people find alternative, active ways to get to and from work, school and around their local community. Your Move helps people swap a few car trips a week for walking, cycling and public transport by offering information and support tailored to their lifestyle to make it easier to find more ways to get there.
The program aims to reduce traffic congestion and improve the efficiency of our transport system while increasing physical activity, improving health and wellbeing of communities, and reducing environmental impacts from excessive car use. The program offers intensive integrated services to households, schools and workplaces in targeted areas in Perth and Peel, while also providing self-help services to all households, workplaces and schools across the region.
The intensive integrated services to targeted areas helps people to achieve their active transport goals through providing tailored information and resources as well as personalised coaching and feedback on progress.
TravelSmart programs evolve into Your Move
The TravelSmart programs began in response to the Metropolitan Transport Strategy (1995) findings that recognised continuing trends in car use were not sustainable and that demand for car use would have to be managed to maintain a liveable city. The programs ran for over twenty years delivering world leading behaviour change programs to households, workplaces, schools and local governments.
As part of the ongoing growth and evolution of the Department of Transport's travel behaviour change programs the TravelSmart programs have been refreshed and renamed to align to the award winning 'Your Move' program.
In addition to the program name change, the Your Move website makes it easier for all school, workplace and local government program participants to interact, share and use the new program resources.
