Community Sponsorship

RAC walks all over October

Through our Community Sponsorships program, last month, we supported the Heart Foundation’s Walk Over October, a state-wide campaign that aims to raise awareness of the health, transport, recreational and environmental benefits of regular walking.

With the increase in traffic congestion on Perth roads, promoting walking as a viable transport option is more important than ever. It’s a key priority for RAC which aims to provide safer, more sustainable and more convenient travel options for our members and the wider WA community.

The courage and community spirit of emergency volunteers

When emergencies arise in communities across the state, the women and men of the Volunteer Bush Fire Service (VBFS) are able to get help into the area quickly, with more than 26,000 volunteers spread across around 560 local brigades.

The service plays a key role in protecting lives and property in emergency situations, including bushfires and in helping with the invaluable and often overlooked clean-up operations that follow.

Enjoying the ride with the RAC e-Bike Trial!

With almost 600,000 cyclists taking to WA’s streets and paths each week, cycling is certainly booming.  We think this is fantastic and it’d be great to see even more Western Australian’s cycling to and from work!

Cycling is good for us as it helps us to be more active, which is great for our health and wellbeing, and we can save money on our travel costs as well!  An increase in cycling also helps to reduce the number of cars on our roads.

For some of us though, cycling might not always seem that attractive due to time, distance or fitness constraints.  But, could electric bikes (or e-Bikes) make a difference?

RAC launches its first ever walking survey

RAC has launched its first ever community survey exploring what it’s like to be a pedestrian in Western Australia.

Most of us travel every day for one reason or another and whatever means we use to get around, for many of us, our trips will start and end with walking.
