Benefits of Public Transport

Traffic reduction

Use of public transport and renewable forms of transport – like walking and cycling – ease congestion and pressure on our road infrastructure. One full bus can take more than 50 cars off the road, a full train more than 600 cars off the road.

$$ savings

No parking fees, registration, insurance, petrol and annual services and repairs. Public transport is a far more affordable option than owning your own car.

Environmental benefits

Travel by public transport instead of cars and planes reduces greenhouse gases which contribute to climate change. Public transport also reduces our reliance on precious natural resources such as oil and the land we use for road infrastructure and car parks.

Health benefits

People who use public transport are more active than those who don’t, reducing their risk of a range of diseases, from diabetes to depression. Add to this that travelling by public transport is far safer than by car, less stressful and produces far less pollution, and you could be on your way to a longer life!

Community benefits

Public transport provides accessible transport for all people, regardless of demographics such as income or age. People who travel together are more likely to feel a connection with their community.
