The TravelSmart Workplace program aims to increase the use of alternatives to the single occupant vehicle by commuters in order to reduce vehicle emissions and traffic congestion in the Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. This paper focuses on the way in which workplace-based education programs can promote walking as part of the journey to work. Two types of intervention were been trialled in workplaces in the Perth central area during 1999. Changes in the percentage of employees including walking as part of their journey to work are examined using quantitative and qualitative data collected during the interventions. The relative effectiveness of the different intervention strategies is discussed.
