Climate-friendly transport

Transport is Victoria’s second-largest, and fastest-growing, source of emissions. Spiking petrol prices are also a big pressure on people’s budgets, particularly in suburbs that have been made car-dependent by poor planning and a lack of walking, cycling and public transport options.

The Greens have a plan to cut transport emissions and make it cheaper and easier for everyone to get around, including:

  • $2.5 billion to build footpaths, pedestrian crossings, and separated bike lanes across Melbourne and regional centres 
  • Trains and trams running every 5-10 minutes from 7am-7pm, seven days a week, across most of the metropolitan network, as well as extra early morning and late-night services every 10 minutes all week 
  • Doubling the number of accessible tram stops, continuing to push for more low-floor trams, and $250 million to upgrade train stations to make them more accessible 
  • A solar-powered, high-frequency bus network across Melbourne and regional cities 
  • Cheaper public transport with the Greens Climate Ticket: $3 full fare, $1 concession, and free for people under 21 
  • An eco-bonus of up to $15,000 to help people make the switch to Electric Vehicles 
  • Subsidies for two-way home EV chargers so EV owners can power their car with rooftop solar and power their home with their car battery 
  • Installing over 1000 more EV chargers so that you can charge your EV no matter where you live 
  • Significantly increasing the amount of freight moved by rail to reduce noise, pollution, traffic congestion and road trauma.
