Let's Go

Let’s Go is all about getting more people to choose walking, riding or taking the bus over using cars for short trips.

Let’s Go encompasses both infrastructure changes, such as new walking or cycling facilities, upgrades and improvements to what we have currently and things that might change people’s attitude and behaviour through things like cyclist skills training, travel planning, events and competitions.

We’re doing pretty well in Nelson, it’s a great place to walk and cycle already but we can always do more!
