Zero-Emission Transition Plan For Transport Canberra

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.

This has started with the introduction of light rail to Canberra which has seen 20% of trips powered by 100% renewable electricity. However we also need to tackle the emissions produced by buses currently powered by fossil fuels.

With this Plan the ACT Government is taking nation-leading action to transition our city’s bus fleet to zero emissions, including the infrastructure, investment and skills needed to make the transition operationally successful.
