If you can, walk to your destination. It is free and is great exercise. Make sure to plan your trip carefully and use GPS (e.g. on your mobile) to guide your way.
Ride a bike
Riding a bike is another healthy option for transport. Again, GPS can be used to direct your travel.
Using public transport (buses, trains or ferries) when possible
Using public transport is often a convenient and pleasant way to travel. Ensure to plan your trip (there are online trip planners and apps) and give yourself enough allowance so you are not forced to rush to make appointment times. Senior citizens can also avail of travel discounts.
Using taxis or Ubers
The use of private cars is another convenient way to travel, although can commonly be more expensive than using public transport. However, if your destination does not have a bus route or train line nearby, this may be the only option. Make sure to consider how much traffic there is likely to be for your trip; listen to traffic updates on the radio or check for updates online. Senior citizens or people with a disability may also be able to claim travel subsidies.
Community transport options
Your local council may offer transport in your area. Check with your council.
Using home delivery services
These days, there are many options for home delivery services and supports, increasing convenience and reducing your need to find alternate ways to travel. For example, food/groceries, medications and clothing can be bought online and delivered to your home. Other services such as GPs or hairdressers can also offer home visits.
If you are an NDIS participant, you may have transport included in your funding. Read your NDIS plan and ask your coordinator to understand what your options are.
