  • This TravelSmart Map was developed in partnership by the Department of Transport, Melway and Kingston City Council to encourage the use of sustainable transport. It has been designed to highlight local sustainable transport options on a pocket-sized complete street map with standard Melway references.

    Walking and cycling, like any physical activity are potentially hazardous.

    Use your common sense. Stay within your abilities, wear protective equipment and follow any applicable laws.

    TravelSmart Local projects

    With 55 per cent of all car trips less than five kilometres, there’s room to increase the number of people choosing sustainable travel options such as walking, cycling and public transport. By providing better access, encouraging changes in travel behaviour and improving end-of-trip facilities for people, we can support the growth of sustainable travel.

    TravelSmart is an initiative of the Victorian Government and aims to reduce people's dependency on cars and encourage them to choose sustainable travel options such as walking, cycling and public transport. The team behind TravelSmart Victoria is part of the Department of Transport.

    TravelSmart has been able to demonstrate that engagement through travel planning achieves sustained reduction in single-occupancy car travel.

    TravelSmart projects involve state and local governments working in partnership with individuals, organisations and institutions to change the way Victorians travel.

    TravelSmart is a simple program that is easy to initiate. It’s about changing one or two trips per week, or reducing the number of car journeys by better planning your travel.

    Finding Your Way A network of directional signage has transformed walking and cycling in and around Chelsea Activity Centre. Highlighting local linkages and key landmarks, the signage has improved sustainable transport access to recreation spaces, parks and retail precincts.

    This project was delivered by a partnership involving Kingston City Council, Chelsea Community Renewal and the Department of Transport to encourage the use of sustainable transport for local travel.

    WalkSmart and CycleSmartCycling groups

    WalkSmart and CycleSmart were developed under the Victorian Government’s TravelSmart program to support travel planning in workplaces as well as the broader community.

    The linked websites are interactive behaviour change tools. They provide support and encouragement to participants as they increase their use of walking and cycling.

    By choosing to walk or cycle as part of the daily commute, members are encouraged to think about sustainable transport options.

    WalkSmart The WalkSmart website makes it fun and easy to stay motivated and reach the magic 10,000 steps per day recommended for health and wellbeing.

    Using a pedometer is also a great motivator for increasing physical exercise, especially when used in conjunction with WalkSmart.

    Once registered with WalkSmart, you can log your daily steps, set personal goals and receive weekly updates of your progress.

    For more information or to register visit walksmart.net

    CycleSmart Cycling is an inexpensive and convenient way to travel within your local area and beyond.

    Whether you are experienced or a beginner, CycleSmart has all the information you need to get started and keep motivated.

    To participate all you need is a cycle computer and an email address. By registering with CycleSmart you can set goals, monitor your progress and even monitor changes in your heart rate.
