Consider Active Travel

Travelling by bike is a fun, time efficient way to get to and from work that reduces road congestion and saves you money, while keeping fit and healthy. For people who live too far from work to cycle the entire distance, they could consider driving part of their journey and cycling the remaning part. Another option could be ride to a bus stop or train station and complete the journey using public transport. 

With close to 300 sunny days per year, walking could be a great solution to getting to and from work during the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final, Gold Coast. If you live too far away from your destination, you can also use walking as a combination, such as park and walk or walk and ride.  Park and walk why not encourage park a kilometre or two away from your destination and walk the last leg to your location. Walk and ride a combination of walking and either public transport or cycling are great options for those who live a little further away from your destination, but still want to leave the car at home during the event days.

Carpooling is a practical way for groups to travel to and from the same area, it will reduce your individual transport costs and ease demand on the roads. Additionally, if carpooling with colleagues it provides you the chance to socially engage outside of the office environment.
