Choose green transport
One of the ways you can help make Adelaide carbon neutral is to consider active ways to travel to, from and around the city.
Walk or cycle
Adelaide is an easy city to traverse by bike or on foot. Its broad, flat streets, dedicated bike lanes and cycling infrastructure through the Park Lands make it very cycle-friendly. You’ll save time, money, and the whole city benefits from the reduced carbon emissions and congestion on the roads. See trails and get a map
Consider car share
Commerical car sharing offers flexibility, a choice of vehicles and maintenance taken care of for you. When one modern and efficient car is shared by many users when they really need it, it means lower emissions from the tail pipe for everyone. The two commercial car share options in Adelaide are Flexicar and Uber Carshare (Formerly car next door).
Catch public transport
Everyone who uses trains, buses and trams contributes to a less congested, cleaner city and a carbon neutral future. You may be surprised how easy a quick shopping trip to the CBD is! Plan your trip
