Walking

Walking is a convenient, healthy and environmentally-friendly transport option for getting to where you need to go. You can see NSW on two feet or combine walking with travel on public transport.

The actions set out in Sydney’s Walking Future will make walking the transport choice for quick trips under two kilometres and will help people access public transport.

Walking is a great way to get around the city and the perfect end to your public transport journey. For a healthy start to your day, why not get off the bus early and finish your trip on foot?

Visit the Transport for NSW website for more information on the benefits of walking and how Transport is working to make walking an easy choice.
