One of the great things about Bowden’s close proximity and connectivity to the city is the ‘walkable’ nature of the new community. Yet we know there are times when a set of wheels might be useful. In keeping with Bowden’s sustainable ideals there are plans to introduce two new transport initiatives for residents: GoGet car share and Bowden Bikes.
GoGet would give Bowden residents access to economical, well-maintained vehicles without the hassles of owning a car. An easy ‘book when you need’ system is an ideal scheme for people who only need a car occasionally and it reduces the pressure on parking spaces in the area.
The benefits to the environment are obvious – fewer cars means less congestion and pollution.
Bowden Bikes is a scheme run by Bowden with the assistance of Bike SA which offers FREE unlimited bike hire during the day. Helmets are provided as well as locks for more flexibility when you’re riding around. Cycling is a more interesting way to travel – it’s a ‘green’ and healthy alternative to driving and a hire point will be a great asset to the Bowden community (available from August).
