Active Transport in Vincent

The City of Vincent is committed to creating a community where walking, cycling and using public transport are attractive and convenient alternatives to travelling by car. The City is keen to promote Active Transport within our locality and public transport maps and cycle and walking maps are available from the Administration Building.

The City encourages all residents, visitors and local businesses to use active transport when possible, and is actively working to promote, support and enable the use of more sustainable transport modes.

Many Vincent residents make around 20 car trips each week. However, only about half of these trips actually require a car, for example when transporting bulky items such as the weekly shopping. For the other half of the trips that we make, it is just as easy, and often quicker, cheaper, better for our health, and better for the environment, to walk, cycle, or use public transport. Why not:

  • Walk 500 metres to the local shop or park for some exercise.
  • Take the bus to the shopping centre or cinema.
  • Cycle 1 kilometre to meet friends.
