Our Focus

A new transport landscape is emerging in Australia today - one where users shape the solutions, and both public and private enterprises co-exist to design, build, operate and maintain a national network of integrated, customised mobility solutions.

Coupled with that, fast evolving automated vehicle and energy technology and shared peer-to-peer market opportunities are changing the face of public and private transport.

The Transport Reform Chapter is broadly focused on how we can best maximise the opportunities and respond to the challenges, ensuring all Australians derive equal benefit from these new and exciting transport scenarios.

In 2017, the Chapter’s goal is to support the work of both governments (at all levels) and private sector partners by:

  • continuing to inform policy development in key transport reform areas,
  • encouraging and strengthening the relationship between governments and the private sector,
  • sharing the expertise of diverse organisations (including start-ups and entrepreneurs) with public and private sector members across Australia, and
  • inspiring public and private enterprise with international and successful local insights.

Chapter Resources
