Planning for the future

Transport Canberra is shaping the way Canberrans move through the development of a better transport network. We’re linking light rail, active travel and our bus network to reduce congestion and enhance our city.

Our job is to provide a transport system for Canberra that is:

Strategies, policies and plans

ACT Transport Strategy

The ACT Transport Strategy sets out the Government's approach to achieving our vision and provides a framework for planning and investing in transport for the next 20 years.

Zero-Emissions Transition Plan for Transport Canberra

The Zero-Emission Transition Plan for Transport Canberra outlines the pathway to achieve the ACT Government’s ambition of a zero-emission public transport system by 2040.

Transport for Canberra Policy

To align with the Transport for Canberra Policy we're continually forecasting and planning to meet the needs of a growing city. A better transport network is integral to realising economic growth and diversification, urban renewal, and enhanced liveability and social inclusion in the ACT.
