urbi Bike-share at Joondalup Health Campus' stories

Lisa Jooste

Ride2Work Day at Joondalup Health Campus

As part of Ride2Work Day on 17 October, urbi are taking a small group of Joondalup Health Campus staff for a ride around the town centre. Riders will also stop at a cafe afterwards.

The short, leisurely ride with urbi's cycle coach will start early enough for the group to take part before work, with no need to change clothes or shower.

"Bike-share's still a pretty new thing in Perth," said Ken Travers from urbi. "A group activity, with a coach, is a way to help get people comfortable with using urbi, and it reinforces that bike riding isn't just for commuting big distances in cycling gear - it can just be a pleasant part of your work day."

Joondalup Health Campus and urbi Bike-share

This story is related to Special contribution to a project

Western Australia’s only bike-sharing scheme, urbi Bike-Share, is developing a focused workplace intervention to promote active travel.

The first initiative is a pilot project among staff at Joondalup Health Campus, which will encourage workers to use urbi as an end-of-journey solution for a set time period, evaluate their perceptions of the experience, and monitor changes in their travel behaviour patterns.

“One of our goals is to partner with communities and employers so we can get more people out riding bikes and make Western Australia a better place to work and live,” said Ken Travers from urbi. “We’re really excited to be partnering with Joondalup Health Campus on our first workplace intervention.”

The intervention design draws on evidence from the health behaviour change and active travel literature. The initial phase will evaluate staff attitudes towards active travel and identify potential target segments, through intercept surveys. This research will guide the selection of a cohort to take part in the intervention. Beginning in the spring, urbi will provide the participants with training in the urbi app and docking system, optional rides around town with a cycling coach, events for the urbi rider group, and social support and motivation. This will be followed by post- trial and follow-up evaluations.
