Increase staff well being and decrease parking and traffic issues around your workplace by encouraging staff to get to work by using a bike, public transport, car pool or walking.

Council supports local workplaces to get staff using sustainable transport in a range of ways including the following:

  • promotional events
  • information regarding green travel plans
  • information regarding workplace bicycle users groups
  • funding options for bicycle facilities such as bike parking.

Please email the Sustainable Transport Officer for assistance.

Ride2Work day

Ride 2 Work day is a national day to celebrate people who ride to work and also to engage people to give riding to work a go.

In 2018, Ride2Work day was held on Wednesday 17 October. We provided $50 breakfast vouchers for the first 20 workplaces registered, as well as a Ride2Work day ‘pack’ for all registered workplaces including the following:

  • Ride2Work day posters and postcards to promote the day in your workplace
  • TravelSmart Maps to help your staff map their route
  • Bicycle Law Brochures to inform your staff about their rights and responsibilities
  • [email protected] workplace bike training information
  • some small prizes to act as giveaways on the day including bike lights, locks, drink bottles, repair kits etc.

We also offered a major prize for the workplace with the most people riding on the day – a smoothie bike session.

Register your interest in future Ride2Work Days through either emailing [email protected] or call 9278 4515
