We tried to minimise our transport impact through choice of location. When Andrew got tenure at the university at which he was then working (Deakin), we decided to move from Ascot Vale (west of Melbourne's CBD) to somewhere closer. The two criteria that narrowed down the candidate locations we looked at were that they be:
Probably the same - we can't think of any shortfalls in
our decision. As Andrew gets older it might be nice to live a little
closer to work, but then having to exercise a bit harder is a good
thing also and so far he is coping.
No changes for Andrew, but we are looking hard at electric vehicles
for Dawn. Her work commute is mostly by train now, and the possibilities for using the car battery as a
grid leveller are also attractive. We just need to stretch the current car another 3-5 years and we'll be able to move off petrol.
