Closing panel discussion: why transport is pivotal to linking people, places, goods, services as well as economic opportunities

Transport systems cannot be planned in isolation from other aspects of city governance. This incorporates city planners, health departments, social services, civil society, private business and other stakeholders. They must participate in decision making. This panel examines the role transport plays to:

  • Promote wellbeing and the safe movement of people or goods
  • Improve mass public transport against a backdrop of population growth, congestion and over-stretched resources
  • Minimise air pollution through alternative energy sources
  • Maximise economic, social and environmental development
