Manly Hospital Bicycle Fleet
A bicycle fleet has been established at Manly Hospital for staff use during work hours. The bicycle fleet assists with replacing vehicle use for short trips (under 5 km) and can be used as transport to meetings as well as other duties during staff breaks.
Part of this process has involved the promotion, enhancement and/or provision of end-of-trip facilities such as bike racks.
