Description:

The project aims to reduce car reliance by encouraging and supporting alternative transport modes such as walking, cycling public transport and ride sharing. Over 5 years (2008-12), more than 186,000 households participated in voluntary programs which analysed their travel behaviour and their effect on the environment. It was anticipated that the program could result in a reduction of more than 3 billion car kilometres travelled. It recieved support from the Greenhouse Gas Abatement Programme: up to AUD 6.487 million.
