Through Way2Go, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and local councils work together to improve infrastructure and create school travel environments that encourage safer, greener and more active travel.

  • A Way2Go education consultant meets with local government council officers to describe the program and invite the Council's commitment to it.
  • Council consults with elected members and makes a commitment to participate.
  • The Way2Go education consultant meets with Principals of all schools in the council area that have a primary enrolment, to describe the program and invite their participation.
  • When the Council agrees to participate in Way2Go, site inspections identify works that are required.
  • Council develops a 3-5 year plan that focusses on improving travel routes to schools within the council area. These may include new treatments, improvements to existing footpaths or crossings and facilities that encourage walking and cycling.
  • Council officers work with schools to link Way2Go to local area facilities, active travel initiatives and community events.
  • Each participating school nominates Way2Go Focus teachers who actively represent the program in their schools with support from the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure's Way2Go team.

Participation in the Way2Go program brings benefits to schools and their communities.

  • Way2Go education consultants from the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure are available to support the Focus teachers in participating schools.
  • School travel routes are reviewed and may be improved to provide opportunities for families to increase their daily physical activity by walking or cycling.
  • School Travel Plans include structured programs for teaching road safety skills and knowledge for students and their families.
  • Way2Go connects with other environmental school programs such as the Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative - AuSSI-SA.
