Walk Budi doesn't only help those people who currently walk to find walking buddies, it also encourages individuals who may be concerned about walking to give it a go. Experienced walkers can advise them on points such as safe and convenient routes and choosing suitable gear for the walk to work.

The benefits of Walk Budi commuting:

  • Ignore traffic reports
  • Fit a workout into your busy day
  • Feel energised when you arrive at work
  • Avoid parking hassles & costs
  • Help improve the region's air quality
  • Have fun and meet like-minded people
