The way forward - Embracing innovation
Return to the Transport Plan for Brisbane page.
Imagine a future where you know where the empty seats are on your bus or train, before you even get on. Your journey will be faster and safer, as networks monitor their own performance, predicting impacts and safely directing movements. You can check your travel options from your front door, so you know the best possible route to take at that exact moment in time to get you where you need to go.
Technology is changing how we live, connect, collaborate, work and travel. Driverless cars, drones, automated logistics, global transport apps and other exciting new technologies have the potential to fundamentally change our transport future.
Our city must be able to take full advantage of new technologies by anticipating, managing and preparing for change. Regulations must enable innovation to flourish while protecting people’s rights and safety, and our infrastructure should support the uptake of new ideas.
We want a transport system that’s driven by smart solutions.
