Active Travel

Reducing emissions from transport is a key challenge for the SEE-Change community.

Getting people to adopt active travel methods like walking, cycling or public transport rather than using a car is vital. By choosing to walk, bike or catch public transport rather than drive your car you will be fitter, happier and healthier.

Bike Trailer Rental

SEE-Change rent cargo and kids bike trailers for 1 month at a time. This scheme allows you try before you buy. 

The kid’s bike trailer transforms into a pram or jogger AND contains large storage areas. This makes it easy to transport children to school or day care, pick up groceries or visit friends by bike.

We have double and single bike trailers available.

Hire costs:

  • Kid’s bike trailer: $40 for the first month and then $1/day (loaned out from the SEE-Change office at the Downer Community Centre).

  • Cargo trailers: $30 for the first month and then $2/day (loaned out from the SEE-Change office at the Downer Community Centre).

  • Deposit: $100 refunded when the trailer is returned.

What you need to know:
