A Transport Plan for a Productive and Active Australia
The Moving People 2030 Taskforce, comprised of 8 national organisations, launched a comprehensive report to Federal, State and
Territorial Governments on how we can deliver a prosperous, sustainable,
liveable and healthy Australia by 2030.
Moving Australia 2030-A Transport Plan for a Productive and Active Australia
sets out pathways for the establishment of a transport, land use
management, planning and funding framework, including how we move
people, today and in the future, to maintain the living standards we
currently enjoy in Australia.
Moving Australia 2030 - A Transport Plan for a Productive and Active Australia
- integrate land use planning and transport at a national level
- oversee the implementation of Capital Cities Planning Criteria agreed to by the Council of Australian Governments
- oversee the delivery of an expanded Liveable Cities program funding and set of projects.
Reducing congestion in our cities through:
- staggering school hours
- increasing the span of operating hours and frequency of public transport services
- providing flexible work hours for all government employees.
Conducting congestion charging trials in capital and major cities.
Developing a set of Moving People Infrastructure criteria to encourage Federal Government investment in walking, cycling and public transport infrastructure.
Making regulatory changes and providing incentives to encourage car sharing through:
- Amending Compulsory Third Party insurance premiums for car share vehicles to accurately reflect the risk of accidents
- Integrating car share schemes with public transport ticketing
- Replacing conventional parking spaces in new residential developments with car share spaces.
Developing High Speed Rail along Australia’s east coast.
Developing an Active Travel Strategy which includes walking, cycling and access to public transport.
Developing a similar scheme to Fringe Benefits Tax for work related public transport trips.
Moving People in Australia by 2030
An integrated and multi-modal transport system that will safely and efficiently move Australians and our goods.
A high quality of life for all Australians from continuing improvements in the sustainability and liveability of our cities and regions through:
the development of world class public transport systems and improved freight networks
walking and cycling amenity and connectivity (active transport)
transit oriented developments.
In undertaking this report and assessing targets for 2030, the Taskforce has reviewed a
range of international and national transport plans and initiatives including:
The International Public Transport Association’s (UITP) PT x 2 Strategy and relevant position papers
State and territory transport and capital city plans (where they exist)
North American strategic transport plans, including Transit Vision from the American Public Transportation Association and the Canadian Urban Transit Association.
The Blueprint for an Active Australia and the Toronto Charter for Physical Activity.
The Taskforce believes that with the right action from the Australian Government and State, Territory and Local Governments, by 2030:
Public transport, walking and cycling will account for an increased modal share in our major cities, and 30 per cent of all passenger trips in our capital cities
Carbon emissions from the passenger road transport sector will be 50 per cent below 2000 levels
The amount of fuel consumed by the road transport sector will be 30 per cent less than current levels
A range of mobility and transport modes will be convenient and accessible for all Australians.
These targets are consistent with other vision statements we have reviewed in developing this report. This report outlines how to achieve these outcomes, and what the benefits will be for Australia’s economy, environment and people.
