Moving Melbourne

Join us for an evening where we discuss active and public transport and seek your feedback on our draft plans.

Opportunities in building active and public transport

Population growth challenges us to consider not only how we travel, but also how we think about travel. We know that increasing active and public transport options is part of the answer however, how do we deliver real options for people in ways that work with how we move within, and through, urban environments?

Like other stakeholders, we has a role in working towards a sustainable transport future. In 2018, we adopted an Integrated Transport Strategy, which commits to an ambitious target of striving for a 50:50 mode share of car and non-car trips by 2031.

A range of initiatives has been released to deliver our vision, including a draft Walking and Accessibility Action Plan, a draft Cycling Action Plan and a draft Public Transport Advocacy Plan.
