Re-think your work journey to save time and money. Active travel is a great way to incorporate regular physical exercise into your daily routine.
Walk or run to work

Park & Pedal to work

Bike & Ride to work
- Store your bike, then hop on a bus. Apply for access to lock up your bike in a bike cage or bike locker, or simply secure your bicycle to a bike rail.
- Take your bike on a bus. Most Rapid services are equipped with bike racks on the front of the bus. If space allows, put your bike on the rack before entering the bus. Check the instructions for on-bus bike racks.
Remember to break up your day with incidental exercise for excellent health benefits. Take the stairs, park further from the office or organise a walking meeting.
