Paper presented at the 33rd Annual Southern African Transport Conference 7-10 July 2014 "Leading Transport into the Future", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
Non-motorised transport, particularly walking, takes a massive share in rural communities
as a form of transport and medium of travel more than other modes of non-motorised
transport or motorised transport. Primarily due to socio-economic characteristics of rural
communities such as low income levels, unemployment, lack of commerce and
development. The paper uses a local municipality as a case study reflecting on the
pressing walkability issues in the municipality and highlights the opportunity presented by
the latter to address the pedestrian challenges. It proposes mobility management
programs in dealing with pedestrian challenges in the municipality and ultimately realising
a walk friendly local municipality.
