Make the move to a healthier, active lifestyle

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the free community-based program to be launched next month encouraged participants to switch car trips for active modes of transport and increase physical activity.

The program will be offered to more than 64,000 households in the City of Wanneroo between April and December.

It will use local transport infrastructure, including the Butler rail extension and connecting local bus services, as well as encourage the use of cycling and pedestrian paths.

‘I encourage Wanneroo residents, local businesses and community groups to get involved in Your Move Wanneroo and take advantage of personalised coaching services and localised information resources,’ Mr Nalder said.

The joint program between the Sport and Recreation and Transport departments is an extension of the program piloted in the City of Cockburn last year.

Behaviour Design Works will deliver the program.
