Matthew Root

Matt Root is a co-owner of Flyt transport planning consultancy based in Perth and he is focused on the planning of safe and convenient bicycle infrastructure across the city.

Between 2018-2020 Matt led the WA State Government's planning for Perth’s Long Term Cycle Network to accommodate the city’s population in 2050.

But most importantly Matt is a husband and father to 3 young children, and for the past 4 years Matt has been the proud owner of a Dutch cargo bike, which has transformed his family’s mobility choices.

The cargo bike is now a central part of family life from daycare to school runs, the commute, trips to the shops, parks or cricket and footie training – the cargo bike is well and truly part of the family.
