Move with active or electric transport

The most planet-friendly forms of transport are walking, cycling and public transport.

When those aren't an option, making the switch to an electric vehicle, or electric bike for shorter journeys, is cleaner, cheaper to run and better for the planet.

Electric cars run on electricity rather than petrol or diesel fuel. They are cheap to run, need very little maintenance, reduce air and noise pollution, and, if charged with renewable energy, they can be zero emissions to operate.


Wollongong City Council is supporting residents in the switch to electric vehicles by increasing the availability of charging stations throughout the city. Read how here. Find all of the public charging stations on PlugShare.
