Passenger transport - 2xEP by 2030

Passenger transport supports and underpins Australia’s economic prosperity by connecting people, businesses and cities. By providing access to markets, employment, recreation and services, it facilitates economic exchanges. Passenger transport is an essential service.

An energy productive domestic passenger transport system would underpin economic prosperity by providing high-quality mobility services, at lower costs, and with greater access, while utilising resources more efficiently and reducing negative environmental impacts (e.g. air pollution, greenhouse emissions and land use). Achieving this goal will require a broad range of measures spanning technology, regulation, planning and consumer behaviour.
