Model communities are urban environments where walking or cycling is offered to the community as the easiest transport choice. Model communities are also about delivering safe environments that suit novice users commuting to school or to work. By funding model communities the Transport Agency encourages a planning and investment approach that fully integrates walking and cycling in urban transport networks.
