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 Government's Future Transport 2056 Strategy, Greater Sydney Services and Infrastructure PlanRegional NSW Services and Infrastructure Plan and The Greater Newcastle Future Transport Plan; there is a focus on improving connectivity for customers who choose to walk and cycle to major centres and public transport interchanges.
