Sustainable Transport Options
Council is committed to supporting sustainable transport including the reduction of the use of cars and increasing the use of public transport, walking and cycling.
Transport Access Guides (TAGs) promote non-motorised transport and public transport by providing localised maps on reaching popular community destinations via sustainable transport. With the development of City of Ryde TAGs Council hopes to help reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and reduce greenhouse emissions.
Shopping Area TAGs
These three guides show transport options for each area including bus interchanges, routes and bus stops; train stations, taxi ranks and car parks. Cycling and walking tracks are marked, as are pedestrian access/crossing and wheelchair access. You will also find post offices, hopsitals, churches, public toilets and parks marked on the guides.
City Wide TAG
Provides a broad overview of the Ryde local government area with bus routes, rail stations, pedestrian access, walking and cycling tracks, plus information on important local characteristics linking each of the key shopping centres.
School Area TAGs
These guides show transport options for the area around each school including:
- Safe walking and cycling routes
- Shop Ryder routes
- Bus interchanges, routes and bus stops
- Train stations
- Helpful hints on road safety and exercise for children.
Cycling and walking tracks are marked, as are pedestrian access/crossing and wheelchair access locations. You will also find Council facilities such as libraries, recreation centres, public toilets, parks and other civic features marked on these guides.
The TAGs are available to the public for free. You can download a copy from the list below or pick up a copy at the Civic Centre, any City of Ryde library, the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Cenre or at local shopping centres.
Some TAGs are also available in Chinese and Korean (see list below).
