At Central Goldfields Shire Council, we are investigating how our community gets from one place to another, where that’s by private or public transport, active transport or community transport.
As the map above shows, there’s limited public transport options in Central Goldfields Shire. Therefore the Central Goldfields community have a high level of car ownership and use. But for many, active transport and public transport are the only ways to save on transport costs.
Council's daily driving costs are around $42 (fuel, rego, servicing, insurance and car financing). If money is saved on driving costs, money can be spent locally – or more cash for discretionary items.
As well as more cash in the pocket on saving driving costs, walking and cycling benefit people by getting them moving. Active transport increases daily physical activity levels and reduces greenhouse gas emissions through a reduction in cars on the road. Other benefits include improved social well-being and a greater sense of community.
The ITSIn partnership with the community, Central Goldfields Shire Council, the Victorian Government Department of Transport and Movement and Place Consulting (M&PC) have developed a draft ITS to demonstrate how Council will seek to address access and transport needs across the municipality.
