Integrated transport for a connected city
Quality transport will be a major driver for sustainability. An integrated transport network is a key part of Sustainable Sydney 2030. The City of Sydney must offer a variety of effective and affordable ways of getting around.
- The City has a role in advocating, sharing and presenting a sustainable vision
- Trains, light rail, buses, ferries, motorbikes, bicycles, cars and pedestrians all have a role in the local area
- Transport to and within central Sydney must be considered at the regional and city centre scale.
Why action is needed
- To minimise greenhouse gas emissions and manage the impacts of global warming
- Maintain economic competitiveness
- Reduce the negative impacts of congestion
- Improve health and wellbeing
- Manage the growth of freight traffic
- Integrate the elements of Sydney’s transport system
- Ensure reliable transport supports an ageing population and people with a disability.
- Support and plan for enhanced access by public transport from greater Sydney to central Sydney
- Reduce the impact of transport on public space in the city centre and activity hubs
- Manage regional roads to support increased public transport use and reduced car traffic in city centre streets
