Active transport

When was the last time you walked, biked or scooted somewhere instead of hopping in the car?

Using active transport in place of shorter car trips is a lot more tempting as the weather warms up and is a great way of fitting some activity into your day. Here are some ideas for adding a bit of active transport into your week:

  • choose to walk, cycle or scoot for car trips shorter than ten minutes
  • for longer trips, try driving part of the way then parking and walking a bit further then you usually would
  • aim to bike or scoot the kids to school one day a week
  • use public transport as this often involves some active transport to get to and from the bus stop or train station.
