Sunshine Coast Mass Transit System
Council to consider Strategic Business Case for Sunshine Coast mass transit system
The draft strategic business case for a new mass transit system to cater for a growing region will be considered by Sunshine Coast Council at its July Ordinary Meeting (Thursday, July 25)
The draft strategic business case for a mass transit system to service the Sunshine Coast identifies continued strong population growth and the need to reduce reliance on private motor transport as key challenges to be addressed if the liveability of the Sunshine Coast is to be maintained as the region continues to grow.
The draft strategic business case supports the need for a high quality integrated public transport system, providing frequent and reliable services as a key driver for reducing car dependency and to support urban consolidation and thus reduce the potential for urban sprawl.
