Get NSW Active

Project overview

The Get NSW Active program invests in projects that support safe, easy and enjoyable walking and cycling trips.

The projects funded by the program include walking and cycling infrastructure as well as the development of strategies that support walking and cycling in local communities.

The NSW Government is committed to encouraging people to walk or cycle as part of their everyday travel.

Walking and cycling for commuting and short trips relieve pressure on our roads and public transport networks, and are part of a healthy lifestyle for our communities.

    The Get NSW Active’s strategic objectives are aimed at: 

    • improving bike riding to and within centres, neighbourhoods and to key destinations
    • improving walkability in centres, neighbourhoods and at key destinations, and
    • enable vibrant centres and liveable neighbourhoods through the creation of street environments that prioritise walking and cycling. 

    Transport for NSW under this grants program, encourages Councils to plan ahead, develop a program of works and consider different funding options for proposed projects.

    This approach enables Transport for NSW to progressively plan and expand networks and support Councils to develop a sustainable forward program of walking and cycling projects that provides tangible benefits for our communities and customers.
