Ipswich City Council developed the City of Ipswich Transport Plan (iGO) to outline its goals to advance Ipswich’s transport system and guide future policy.
The plan defines active transport as “an efficient, cost effective, healthy, sustainable and accessible form of transport which has many benefits for both the individual and the community”.
The most common forms of active transport are walking and cycling, although scooting, skating, mobility devices and travelling on public transport are also included in the definition.
Council has further developed its plan to promote and support active transport documented in the iGO Active Transport Action Plan.
