Townsville Mobility Strategy

Townsville is the largest city in Northern Queensland. Safe, convenient and reliable travel options should be available to everyone, to support its ongoing growth and development.

The Townsville Mobility Strategy will guide the development of Townsville's passenger transport system and supporting networks over the next 15 years.

The strategy outlines the strategic priorities and key initiatives to provide efficient, equitable and convenient travel options for the people of Townsville. The initiatives address:

  • customer experience
  • network operations
  • infrastructure—including catalyst passenger transport infrastructure
  • government policy—including travel demand management.

Townsville needs all levels of government to plan, invest and deliver land use and transport initiatives together. These initiatives will be used by Queensland Government, Townsville City Council and the Australian Government to support coordinated action and investment.
