Workplace Travel Program

As the city grows we require transport solutions that move beyond the use of a car as the main mode of travel. Businesses are encouraged to consider their travel choices and promote a range of options for:

  • staff and business related travel
  • freight, servicing and deliveries
  • customer and visitor travel.

Walking to work

Did you know that one quarter of all Gold Coast workers live within five kilometres of their workplace? With having close to 300 sunny days per year, 54 kilometres of beaches and a relatively flat topography, the Gold Coast provides the perfect environment and backdrop for walking.

A combination of walking and either, public transport or cycling, are great options for those who live a little further away from your business, but still want to leave the car at home and increase their exercise. Use our walk, cycle and public transport maps to plan your trip.

Cycling to work

With over half the Gold Coast population living within 10 kilometres of their workplace, many of us could consider cycling to work. It’s a mode of transport that’s not only healthy, social and inexpensive, but also requires little effort or prior planning. Plus, you could be at work in as little as 10 to 20 minutes which is a huge benefit to consider during the Games. The average person can cycle one kilometre every four minutes.

Free cycling workshops and resources

To help encourage and promote cycling to and from your business, we offer a range of resources, maps and free cycling workshops tailored just for businesses like yours.

Catching public transport to work

Catching public transport can allow you to avoid traffic and the stresses of commuting in peak period. Travellers can spend the commute reading, relaxing or preparing for the day. Public transport can be an easy, cost-effective and convenient mode of transport. Why not combine public transport with cycling or walking to get to and from work?

Carpooling to work

Carpooling is a practical way for staff that travel to and from the same area to reduce their own individual transport costs and ease demand on the roads. Additionally, carpooling provides your staff with the opportunity to engage socially outside of the office environment. By working to have fewer cars on our roads, carpooling also offers a great way to promote your business as contributing to reducing emissions.

Use the QLDTraffic app to plan your commute.
