About light rail in Canberra

As a proven and popular mass transit technology, light rail will be a key tool in reducing Canberra’s car dependency. It will also contribute to a reduction in carbon emissions by being powered exclusively by renewable energy and will limit urban sprawl by facilitating transport-oriented urban renewal.

Light rail will eventually form the backbone of a Canberra-wide, integrated public transport network along the inter-town routes, supported by more frequent local bus services and improved active travel infrastructure.
