Low Cost Interventions to Encourage Cycling: Selected Case Studies
  • Publication no: AP-T281-14
  • ISBN: 978-1-925037-92-0
  • Published: 1 December 2014

This report contains 15 case studies showcasing low cost interventions that have successfully encouraged cycling in Australia and New Zealand.

Engineers and behaviour change specialists are implementing a range of innovative low-cost infrastructure treatments and encouragement strategies which aim to encourage more people to use active transport modes.

The case studies project directly relates to priority six (guidance and best practice) of the National Cycling Strategy 2011-16 and aims to illustrate what is possible and provide inspiration to planners and practitioners.
