To further its advocacy for public transport improvements, the ETC has produced a series of factsheets highlighting its priorities for the region:

Despite having one of the highest levels of urbanisation, Australia remains the only OECD nation where the Federal Government does not provide funds for sustainable transport infrastructure.

This places Australia at an international disadvantage, compared to countries such as the UK and US, whose national governments invest heavily in public transport infrastructure.

The Federal Government currently funds major upgrades of roads and public transport should be eligible for similar funding, especially since it would reduce congestion and greenhouse gases.
