Commuters learn to travel smarter

30 Oct 2009

More than 350 staff from local workplaces braved the elements on National Ride to Work Day on Wednesday, October 14, to attend the first Sustainable Transport Expo to be held in Victoria Harbour.

The event showcased alternative ways to get to work such as cycling and public transport. It was timely as new employers, such as ANZ and Myer, bring an extra 7000 staff into the area, and new transport routes such as the Collins St tram extension are opened.

The expo was run at Victoria Green in two parts. The first was a breakfast between 7am and 9am which welcomed commuting cyclists with food as well as a massage, “helmet-hair” repair and cycle repair.

This was followed by another series of stalls between 12pm and 2pm involving Metlink, Flexicar, RMIT School of Design, Victoria Police, Degani and the Transport Ticketing Authority, as well as talks and a prize draw. Carrick Institute of Education provided both breakfast and lunch for attendees.

The Sustainable Transport Expo was run by Access Melbourne, a network of employers promoting sustainable transport within Melbourne CBD, Docklands and Southbank.
