Your Move Fremantle

We run the Your Move program with the Department of Transport. Your Move promotes walking, cycling, scooting and public transport to get around Fremantle. The program offers support and advice to help you find other ways to get to and from school, your workplace and around your local area.

You can get involved by walking, riding and using public transport whenever possible. It is a great way to increase physical activity, reduce environmental impact and connect with others. 

We have a number of local Your Move schools committed to increasing active transport among their students. If you would like to find out more about the Your Move program, visit the Your Move website for ideas, resources and tools to get you and your family moving. 

If you would like to hear more about how to get Your Move in your school, contact us on 1300 MY FREO (1300 693 736) or info@fremantle.wa.gov.au

Your Move maps

Together with the Department of Transport, we have developed a map to make active transport easier to access in the City of Fremantle. One side of the map focuses on public transport and the other side of the guide is for walking and cycling. Please note that bus and cycle routes may have changed since the initial publication of the maps.

With the use of this well-constructed map, community members can discover possible routes of travel through bus services, bikes, trains, scooters, paths and trails. The map also includes the locations of various skate parks, playgrounds, bridges, education facilities, hospitals etc. Your move encourages community members to explore the city, make sustainable travel choices and use the accessible community services that the City of Fremantle offer.

Please find the current Your Move Fremantle map here.
