Safe, efficient, and sustainable transport is essential to a community’s economy, enabling access to services and resources, and adds to the amenity of the region.
Transport networks include road, rail, maritime and aviation transport in Australia, but increasingly also includes ‘passive’ forms of transport such as bike and footpaths.
All tiers of government have a role to play in ensuring that transport within a location meets the needs of residents and visitors. Local government plays the most significant role as it is the implementor and maintainer of most transport options, other than trains, planes, and national roadways. Road transport options include public transport such as commercial buses, taxis, and social buses. These are often subsidised by local government and not-for-profit organisations.
