Transport for Canberra Policy

Transport for Canberra was released on 19 March 2012.

Transport for Canberra will be the foundation for transport planning for the next 20 years. It updates and replaces the 2004 Sustainable Transport Plan and will sit alongside an updated and refreshed Canberra Spatial Plan, now known as the ACT Planning Strategy.

Transport for Canberra has been prepared in conjunction with the ACT Planning Strategy so important relationships between land use and transport can be used to support a shift to more sustainable transport and a more sustainable Canberra. Public transport will look markedly different in the future as we implement Transport for Canberra.

As Canberra grows and changes, Transport for Canberra will help us to reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions while increasing the number of people using active travel and public transport. It will increase accessibility for all Canberrans and improve links throughout the region.
