Yarra has the highest proportion of people who cycle to work in Australia. More than two in every five residents walk, cycle or catch public transport to go to work.
Council's aim is for Yarra to double the rate of residents cycling to work from 6.4% to 15% by 2015. In 2009 Council adopted the Bicycle Strategy 2010-2015 to establish a long-term vision for cycling in Yarra.
The strategy details the status on bicycle initiatives, lays out future plans for bicycle facilities and lists strategies and actions for stimulating greater bicycle use in the City of Yarra. It aims to establish cycling as a legitimate first choice of transport by people of all ages and cycling abilities through providing cycling facilities that serve a broad range of social objectives.
