Digital Strategic Plan 2021–2025

Our Digital Strategic Plan sets the strategic imperative for our ongoing journey to become a digital organisation and outlines a vision for a 'digitally-enabled, integrated and inclusive transport network connecting all Queenslanders'.

Aligned to our Strategic Plan, the strategy identifies 5 priority areas to guide the department towards delivering customer-centric, secure and reliable, data-driven, seamless and future-focused transport solutions and digital customer experiences.
