We can all make smarter choices about our travel, whether for commuting, for work or for leisure.
If you only need to make a short trip, it doesn’t make sense to drive a vehicle. Why not walk, ride a bike, car share or use public transport instead? These sustainable modes also help to increase physical activity, health and well-being.
And you'll reduce your costs and carbon footprint.
The City of Adelaide has produced a brochure summarising smarter or more sustainable ways to get around the city.
How much can you save?
As an example, a cyclist commuting 18km each way every day on a relatively flat commute will save about $3,000 on petrol and 0.9 tonnes of C0² every year when compared to a small car such as a Toyota Corolla.
