Walking and Cycling

The NSW Government is committed to working with councils to make walking and cycling a more convenient, safer and enjoyable transport option that benefits everyone.

By better targeting investment to improve walking and cycling in areas where most short trips occur, the NSW Government aims to support more accessible, liveable and productive town, cities and centres by:

  • Reducing congestion
  • Freeing up capacity on the public transport system for those customers that need to travel further
  • Encouraging walking and cycling to be the mode of choice for short local trips

The Active Transport (Walking and Cycling) program is in line with the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan (LTTMP), Sydney’s Walking Future, Sydney’s Cycling Future and the ten Regional Transport Plans which have a focus on improving walking and cycling connections within major centres, and at public transport interchanges.
