Better public transport

Rush hour on Mitchell Freeway

Better public transport, and more people using it, is important for healthier cities.

In Perth only about 8% of daily trips are made by bus, train or ferry. In country WA public transport services are limited. Public transport provides a critical mode of travel for low-income earners, but it needs to become a mode of choice for many more if we are to reduce car dependence.

The STC promotes public transport, along with cycling and walking, as preferred modes of travel.
