“5 priorities in transport/mobility for a healthier Melbourne” workshop responses

Posted in Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Ferne Edwards on November 25th, 2008

At the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on Healthy Cities we asked the audience to name five priorities in transport / mobility that would make Melbourne a healthier and more sustainable city. Many people listed “Bike lockers, bike racks and more parking areas at suburban train stations”, “Dedicated spots for bikes on trains / buses”, and “priorising pedestrians” as their top points. Other more unusual responses included “frequent riders (like frequent flyers) to earn points” or “Rewards for people who cycle eg. A reduced cost for health insurance” or even “Teleportation – something to ponder”! The complete list of the responses are below.
