Travel Smart - Active Transport fact sheets

TravelSmart Program

The Taskforce, in conjunction with the Department of Transport, developed a series of TravelSmart fact sheets to assist local governments, individuals and relevant organisations in understanding the TravelSmart program and the benefits it has to offer.

TravelSmart is unique because it works directly with individuals in their households to help them make informed travel choices about how to get to places using their cars less and walking, cycling and using public transport more.

TravelSmart is about empowering people to make decisions that can benefit their environment, their health and their wallet.

TravelSmart also works with local communities, including local governments, schools, universities, hospitals and workplaces, to help them self-manage the process of change. In this way, TravelSmart helps to build the capacity of organisations and institutions to influence the travel behaviour of their staff and customers.
