TRAVEL SMART

A community where everyone can get around by active or zero emissions transport

Our community goals for 2025 are:

1. A significant decrease in the proportion of Moreland residents driving to work.

2. A higher than average (Melbourne metropolitan) ownership of electric vehicles.

WHAT CAN I DO?

Cycling, walking or catching public transport helps reduce local air pollution and helps us all move towards a zero carbon future. Moreland also has a great network of public electric vehicle charging stations which are 100% renewably powered and free to use.

GET AROUND MORELAND ON FOOT

Make walking a part of your routine and you’ll be happier, healthier and feel more connected to the people in our neighbourhood.

JOIN A CAR SHARE PROGRAM

Choosing car share membership as an alternative to car ownership gives you access to a car when you really need it.  It also provides a nudge to use a more sustainable travel option all other times.

USE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE

If more active travel options are not practical, an electric car or bike powered by renewable energy is the low emissions option.
