Ambassador Trikes

Gavin Giles
City of Fremantle

The City provides over 20 Ambassadors for visitors to the city and especially when a cruise ship is in port. They are stationed at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal, Visitors Centre and Parry Street bus shuttle stop. The volunteer Ambassadors are there to answer questions, hand out maps of the city and provide information and help to all visitors.
Last year, the centre purchased two trikes for our Ambassadors to use to get to and from the Passenger and to carry visitor info. Their maiden voyage was last week when the Queen Elizabeth was in port. Ambassador comments about the trikes include “they are great – the big basket at the back lets us carry all our gear plus water and lunch”…..”The bikes a big and bright and a bit unusual – they attract people, which makes it more engaging with visitors and passers by”.

Thanks Gavin. Great to see the trikes being used by the volunteers and modelling active travel to visitors and passersby. I have added 25 points for a readable story (love the quotes from the volunteers) and innovation.
