On Wednesday 18 September 2019, MAPD held a large display on the "bridge" at Royal Perth Hospital. The purpose was to promote all things Travelsmart.

Approximately 60 people attended the display and were able to obtain information on getting to the site instead of using the car.

There was a survey on “how you got to the site” with other questions, however it was not a requirement for them to complete. A final count showed that there were 30 completed surveys. The majority were staff and overall the comments about commuting to RPH were that they were “very convenient”.

Transperth Education Officer, Louise Madden attended to provide information to staff, visitors and patients on the Transperth App and how to use it, also providing journey planning to many.

Nick Garland, Owner of South Perth Cycles provided 2 e-bikes on display which could be salary packaged through Paywise. Staff showed some keen interest in the bikes.

MAPD, received lots of interest @ 40 staff who left their details to arrange a corporate smartrider appointment. They also went into the draw for some great prizes.

The Department of Transport, Cancer Council, Healthy Workplace WA and the Heart Foundation were sourced for the merchandise and information that will help educate staff on the importance of regular exercise, such as cycling and walking for good health. Some great backpacks, drink bottles, recipe books, pedometers, coffee keep cups etc were prizes which we gave to those that completed a survey or signed up for the corporate smartrider, or our end of trip bike facilities.

The event proved a great success and RPH public relations department prepared a story about the event.

It sounds like you took it to the bridge even better than James Brown! Your AT promo event earned you 25 points. Plus I have given you a bonus 20 points for the outstanding way you pulled it together with a stimulating display, and involvement from Transperth and South Perth Cycles. There was also another little 10 point bonus for making it a good read! Where did the PR dept publish the story?

Did you say staff can salary package an e-bike through paywise? Wow. The Your Move community would love to know a bit more about this - are staff taking it up? how are you publicising it? I have added 'Novated bike lease' to your activity list. If you post a story about this you should be able to link it to the activity and earn 80 activity points. It is one of our large point earners because it is such a great way to help a car commuter change to a bike commuter.
