That way people could 'practise' and gradually be encouraged on a continual basis, perhaps workplace facilities might improve due to more constant demand, ride/walk/PT would gradually be normalised rather than remaining marginalised etc etc
A lot of Australian business already have 'casual Friday', so Friday is probably the best choice, as we don't have to be too fussed about what business-wear we use during the day.
Yeah... I thought of fridays but then recalled my commuting days and how you took your life in your hands getting off the tram 'cos every driver seemed to be in a big hurry to get home (or to the pub??) on a Friday afternoon - so many near misses (and one hit I can recall) and always on a Friday. Still worth some thought, I reckon.
