Active Travel

Active travel means a mode of transport which involves physical activity such as walking and riding a bike to get from one destination to another - including travel to and from the places we live, work, learn, visit and play. These are some of the most efficient and effective ways to incorporate regular exercise into our daily lives, reducing many long-term health risks and contributing to our mental and physical health and well being.

The ACT Government remains committed to delivering on a healthy, active and vibrant Canberra under the Healthy Weight Initiative.

Together, let's make Canberra the best city in Australia to walk and ride a bike.
