Welcome to Future Transport Tasmania

We are here to lobby for better public transport and rail infrastructure in Tasmania. We aim to find solutions to allow all Tasmanians to have environmentally responsible and affordable commuting options to get around our state and towns. A more detailed mission statement can be found in the left column or <here>.

Of course, train freight should be state-owned. Our governments have sold off too many State-owned assets already, which has in many circumstances, ended up with private monopolies of some of our utilities. This is not fair trade or good choice for Tasmanians.

As I am an avid cyclist, getting cars out of the CBD is great. I would support a Venice or Amsterdam model of no cars in the CBD. Transport to be provided by light rail or tram - make it a real selling point of Hobart, and Tasmania.
We could look at making Bass Strait duty-free and seriously look at a VFT from Devonport to Hobart in the future. Pigs may fly, but we can only hope and dream!
Definitely, definitely a cable car up Mt. Wellington.
