Active Transport

Active Transport

Active transport is the most practical and sustainable way to increase physical activity levels, helping Western Australian’s to achieve the recommended 30 minutes of physical activity per day.

There is also a strong argument for enabling an increase in the uptake of active forms of transport in response to growing concerns about the effect of climate change, pollution, population growth and traffic congestion.

Active Transport

Walking and cycling for transport are important contributors to increasing levels of physical activity in Western Australia. There is also a strong argument for enabling an increase in the uptake of active forms of transport in response to growing concerns about the effect of climate change, pollution, population growth and traffic congestion.

Why Use Active Transportation?

Active transport is defined as physical activity undertaken as a means of transport and not purely as a form of recreation. It is a great way to keep healthy and fit, save money and reduce your impact on the environment.

Why Walk?

Walking is the most popular type of physical activity amongst Western Australian adults, and the one exercise in which people across all age-groups can participate. It is accessible to all social groups, religions and cultures. It is also free and can be done almost anywhere, without special equipment.
