AGF Partners with DoorDash Australia
We are proud to announce our partnership with DoorDash to deliver a national training and education program for all DoorDash riders (Dashers) across the country. As Australia’s leading cycling safety organisations, we hope to continue raising awareness of rider safety and to create a safer environment for their Dashers as well as all vulnerable road users
As part of the partnership, the Amy Gillett Foundation along with Wheel Women Australia will be developing a range of in-app tools and materials that are designed to improve rider safety, including training processes and educational guides that promote safe practices for DoorDash riders. In addition we will be working together to develop an onboarding training course called “train the trainer” in which DoorDash will enrol their Dashers to strengthen their knowledge of cycling safety.
AGF invests in research, education and advocacy. Everything we do is for safe cycling and we will continue this within our partnership with DoorDash, focusing on policies for vulnerable road users through an increased investment in bike lane infrastructure, further enforcement of minimum passing distance laws and speed limit reduction.
We all have a right to be safe while cycling, yet one in five people who are injured on Australian roads are riding their bike. Every 10 days a cyclist is killed, that’s nearly 40 people each year. We know the importance of raising awareness and connecting with fellow companies like DoorDash who are passionate about getting every cyclist home to their families.
