Motorcycling in Brisbane

Having a safe, connected, flexible and sustainable transport network is vital to our city. It helps us commute to work, access vibrant lifestyle and leisure opportunities, do business and visit family and friends.

Motorcycling is a key initiative of the Transport Plan for Brisbane - Implementation Plan 2018, and focuses on opportunities for safe, motorcycle travel in the city. Travelling by motorcycle and mopeds, particularly for commuter trips, can assist in managing congestion on our roads and reduce the need for car parking in the CBD and activity centres.

Our vision is for motorcycling to be a transport mode of choice for travelling throughout Brisbane and minor goods transport, with appropriate infrastructure in place to support safe riding for residents, visitors and businesses in Brisbane.

By working with the motorcycling community and key transport stakeholder groups, Council will continue to identify and develop policies, action plans and infrastructure opportunities to enhance safe motorcycle travel in the city.

About the project

To help identify opportunities to improve motorcycle travel across Brisbane, Brisbane City Council sought feedback from the community and industry from 3 December 2021 to 27 February 2022. 

This feedback will help Council deliver on our commitments in the Transport Plan for Brisbane - Strategic Directions (Transport Plan).

Following a review of community and industry feedback, Council will develop a motorcycling implementation approach detailing short and longer term initiatives and actions Council can deliver.
