Information Tools for Cycle Friendly Workplaces

Australian Greenhouse Office Staff Bike Fleet

Many workplaces around Australia are supporting their employees to use sustainable ways to travel during work for business trips and lunch breaks. Providing a staff bike fleet is an excellent way to improve the health and well being of employees, and a bike fleet places considerably less demand on parking space than other vehicles. The Australian Greenhouse Office launched its new vehicle fleet in August 2004, and information about managing a staff bike fleet is made available here through these in-house publications which can be used as sample documents for establishing your bike fleet.

Documents are available for downloading as PDF files. (PDF help) If you are unable to access these documents, please contact TravelSmart Australia to organise a suitable alternative format.
