Adelaide Carpool

Adelaide Carpool is a free, web based service for city based organisations that want to support their staff to share their drive to work. Adelaide Carpool is a joint initiative of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and Adelaide City Council and is open to selected workplaces in the Adelaide CBD.

It is for anyone who wants to save money, share their drive and reduce their carbon footprint while travelling to work. It takes two minutes to join and then you will be matched with other people who live close by or are travelling in the same direction. If you're interested in your organisation signing up, visit www.adelaidecarpool.com.au or email support@adelaidecarpool.com.au

Community Road Safety Groups

Information on Community Road Safety Groups can be found here.

Living Neighbourhoods

Living Neighbourhoods helps communities that want to benefit from improved road safety on their local streets. We offer tools and information to turn your ideas into action. These could be quite specific, for example encouraging more people to enjoy their local spaces or developing safer places for children to play. Otherwise, you might want to address a specific concern, see more respect between different road users and residents, or take part in creating a neighbourhood where people feel more comfortable and included.

Living Neighbourhoods Website

Moving Right Along

A resource for communities, individuals, families and friends that provide more information about transportation and driving options for older drivers. The kit is comprised of a series of eleven information sheets, available to download from the program's website, as well as a facilitators guide and information about holding group workshops and is designed to be "self-managing" at the local level.

TravelSMART

TravelSMART engages residents in a specific target area to identify some of their transport issues and work collaboratively to develop a possible solution, with the objective of also reducing overall personal car use. Individuals are provided with a few options, and any necessary tools (e.g. journey plan), and are followed up on their progress throughout the project.

TravelSMART focuses on individual households within specific target areas to engage in travel behaviour change which influences a shift in their personal travel towards safer, greener and more active travel choices, whilst reducing car use. Through these collaborative conversations TravelSMART seek to influence residents to make a change in how they get around - reducing their car use in a way that improves their lifestyle or achieves a personal benefit.
