2. Education and encouragement - Promoting walking and cycling as attractive means of transport and recreation by stressing their availability and the environmental, economic and health benefits of these activities.
3. User safety and personal security - Creating a comfortable and safe walking and cycling network.
4. Integrated transport programs and projects - Integrating walking and cycling into transport planning processes.
5. Integration with public transport - Integrating walking and cycling with public transport to increase its patronage and relieve road network congestion.
6. Mid-journey and end-of-trip facilities - Providing mid-journey and end-of-trip facilities, like locker rooms and showers, to encourage more people to walk and cycle.
7. Land use planning - Integrating walking and cycling into land use planning to create spaces that facilitate and encourage increased 'active transport'.
8. Other clean and green transport modes - Encouraging all active, healthy and environmentally friendly forms of transport.
