Council has developed the Transport Plan for Brisbane - Strategic Directions (Transport Plan). This is a guide to the evolution of our city's transport network over the next 25 years as Brisbane grows and evolves.
Traffic and transport
Brisbane City Council is getting you home sooner and safer by delivering better flowing roads for Brisbane and keeping the suburbs moving. Across the city, we’re taking action to reduce congestion, improve safety and traffic flow and build better transport networks to meet the needs of our beautiful city, now and into the future.
We are creating more travel options, including new green bridges and the turn-up-and-go Brisbane Metro, which will revolutionise public transport in our city. We're also improving more than 1000 local roads to create smoother streets and creating more dedicated bikeways and walking options. Council is committed to providing world-class public transport with more buses for the suburbs, expansion of the CityCat fleet and subsidised public transport and free services such as CityHopper ferries and city bus loops.
Metro and bus network review
The first stage of Brisbane Metro will evolve our bus network to better meet the travel needs of our growing city and address demand for more efficient transport.
Better roads for Brisbane
Brisbane City Council is upgrading numerous roads across the city to improve safety, increase efficiency and reduce congestion. Pedestrians and cyclists will also benefit from works on many projects with new and improved walking and shared paths, crossings, lighting and gardens.

North west transport network
Council is developing a business case to help reduce traffic congestion through Brisbane’s north-west.
We’re building new green bridges to make it even easier to get around our city on foot, by bike or scooter, or by connecting with public transport.
The pilot metro has arrived and testing will begin in local operating conditions. You may see it travelling to and from testing locations during 2022 and into 2023.
