walk image

This year the Walk2Work Day theme is Walking and Public Transport.  A walk is part of every bus, train and ferry ride.  Research shows that walking and catching the bus or train (or ferry you lucky people) keeps you fitter than using a car. 

Celebrate your good choices in transport and for health on Walk2Work Day 11 March 2015 by joining one of the great events planned.

Walking and taking public transport is like a sock and a shoe, or a bus and a passenger. They just go together. Walking and PT get you where you want to go and keep you fitter too.
