Our accessible, connected city

In 2031, Brisbane will be an accessible city for everyone. Residents, workers, students, visitors and business people will be able to move easily throughout the city.

Road, public transport and active transport networks will provide safe, efficient, fast and reliable travel options throughout the city. These networks will help deliver economic benefits to Brisbane and support our growing community and changing economy.

Council has already made a number of improvements across the city, including upgrades to parking infrastructure, public transport and community facilities and venues.
