Walking Matters - key evidence

Did you know that women are much more likely to walk for exercise than men?

Or that 21% of trips in Melbourne are made on foot, making it more commonly used than all forms of public transport combined?

How about the fact that walking is the most sustainable form of transport, producing no carbon emissions compared to 243.8g of CO2 per person per km for the average Victorian petrol car?

Our new report Walking Matters - Key Evidence to Support Council Planning provides a wide range of ready-reference facts that can be used to illustrate the importance of walking or support investment, whether it’s recreational trails or pedestrian crossings and everything in between. It draws on our previous research as well as other sources and some new data analysis.
