The future of transport

Jurisdiction: Australian Capital Territory

How does transport need to change in the digital age?

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a huge shift to remote work and virtual collaboration, changing how and when people travel across the city. As we move towards a new normal of flexible working options, how do we make sure that public transport in Canberra meets the demands of the future? How have journey patterns changed already and how might they change in the years to come?

As working remotely becomes more common, the way people move around the city will change. Transport solutions which are designed for commuters might have to change dramatically.

How much change in public transport usage have we seen in the last 18 months, and how much should we expect in the next 10 years? How can the ACT plan for this change and what transport solutions will be required?
