Sustainable Transport

To reduce our carbon emissions and overall impact on the environment, we have introduced Toyota Hybrid Corollas to our fleet and plug in hybrid electric vehicles. These vehicles are more fuel efficient than conventional cars, release lower carbon dioxide emissions and also save money. We are investigating replacing trucks with the latest fuel efficient options. The community is also taking action and has installed electric charging stations in front of the Organic Market in Stirling, Adelaide Hills Business Centre in Woodside, Applewood in Gumeracha, and the National Motor Museum in Birdwood to facilitate the use of electric vehicles.

We have also prepared an Electric Vehicle Charging Station Information Report that identifies potential locations and types of EV charging stations within the district. This report is available under Council Documents.

The Commonwealth’s Green Vehicle Guide outlines the environmental performance of light vehicles sold in Australia.

We offer a small community bus service, and although the service was designed with the intent of providing a service to aid residents socially, it is also seen as a good step in emission reduction by reducing private car travel.

Council acknowledges that we conduct our business on the traditional lands and waters of the Peramangk and Kaurna people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging as the Custodians of this ancient and beautiful land.
