Making it easier to stop driving
Stopping driving does not have to limit your life and freedom. Stay engaged in all your important activities out and about in the community.
6 weeks with your peers and coach
Your weekly group workshops will provide you with the building blocks to becoming car free.
Evaluate the options that suit your lifestyle
Every person is different, so your plan for going car free will be unique and personalised to meet your needs.
Keep doing what you love, car free
Becoming car free doesn’t have to stop you from being you, being who you want to be, doing what you want to do.
What people are saying
“I have learned about finding alternative means of transport, planning with more wisdom, the search for best retirement options. The information supplied, support and encouragement, professionalism of the program have all been very useful.”
“The useful information and the common positive ways of the group helped in overcoming the desire to keep driving after more than 55 years. The need to drive has been dissipated and the camaraderie of the group was such that I looked forward to each session.”
Sunshine Coast, QLD
“The groups offer very practical strategies and information about continuing to live well after you stop driving. You are learning from and with people who are going through the same experiences, so it is a supportive and friendly environment”
