The future of private transport in Australia

Private transport is likely to be markedly different in the years ahead, driven by a number of technological disruptors currently under development such as battery driven, autonomous (driverless) vehicles and the rapid advancement of care-share and ride-share vehicles.

Predictions are that these disruptions will lead to massive changes in the global vehicle industry, government regulation, and even urban design of our cities by as soon as 2030, yet little research to prepare for how these changes will be met and accepted by users and society generally. ​

This report by ClimateWorks Australia is one chapter of a broader project by a collaboration of Monash Research partners. It was developed to examine current knowledge and identify gaps in research we need to address if we are to better understand the challenges and opportunities that future transport may present.
