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.
