Draft Transport Access Strategy
The draft Transport Access Strategy sets out the Tasmanian Government’s approach to providing better integrated and coordinated transport services for all Tasmanians, particularly those disadvantaged through economic circumstances, age or disability.
The draft strategy aims to improve social connectivity and access to employment (paid and voluntary), training and education, services and recreational opportunities by focusing on progressing the following priority areas:
- Living closer: improved opportunities for people to live closer to employment, education, services, recreational opportunities and key transport corridors.
- Working together: stronger collaboration and partnership between governments, key service providers, and public, private and not-for-profit transport providers.
- Connected transport system: a focus on frequent, efficient, accessible, affordable and reliable transport services.
- Better integration: ensuring public transport is easier to use through better coordination and integration of services.
- Closing transport gaps: developing innovative approaches to enable those members of the community who are transport disadvantaged to overcome transport barriers.
- Innovative pricing: developing innovative pricing mechanisms to support the greater use of public transport in order to make it more viable.
- Improved infrastructure: providing more opportunities for people to walk, cycle and use public transport by making sure infrastructure issafe, accessible and attractive to use.
Public consultation on the draft Transport Access Strategy closed on 9 September 2016.
The Department is now considering the comments received and using this feedback to inform the final strategy.
