CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

The City is looking to ascertain barriers to wider uptake of active and public transport use by the Albany community and has designed a brief online survey to capture this input. The City is a member of the TravelSmart Program, and active transport (walking, cycling and public transport use) is integral to this Program.

It would therefore be appreciated if you could take a few minutes to complete this brief survey about your current use of active transport, and barriers to using these transportation methods more regularly. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2KH63GR

While not compulsory, if you provide your name and contact details you will go into the draw to win one of 5 movie vouchers.
