Cities have been investing heavily in increased transport connectivity, as population continues to increase. Micromobility serve to assist first and last mile travel to and from train stations and busses. It’s never been easier to get from A to B without using a car OR needing to buy an alternative form of transport. Switching from cars to public transport also goes a long way to save on carbon emissions. Take advantage, and hop aboard.
A wise person once said, “These boots are made for walking. Whilst walking long distances may not suit everyone, there are myriad health benefits to getting out and stretching our legs. In addition to reducing stress, relieving anxiety and being a great form of exercise, walking is also (almost) carbon-free! In fact, one study found that walking 2.4 kilometres would release 75% less greenhouse gases than we would produce from driving the same distance.
Purchases of bicycles, e-scooters and other forms of active and eco-friendly transport have spiked, with the pandemic resulting in Aussies investing in socially distanced ways of travelling and a fun outdoor activity during lockdowns and COVID-19 restrictions. Even as cities reach COVID normal, there’s no reason to leave the bike gathering dust. Cycling and scooting to work are great ways to get some incidental exercise, enjoy the city AND get to where you’re going.
The majority of Beam riders utilise shared e-scooters for commuting purposes, showing that many Aussies are seeking affordable alternatives to cars. Check if your workplace has ‘end of trip facilities’ such as showers, lockers or bicycle storage that can make active transport an easy alternative to driving. If this is not something your workplace offers, maybe it’s something you can ask for. If all else fails, designate an area of the office as Bicycle Parking and start making active commuting the new normal for your workplace.
