Future Transport Technology Roadmap 2021-2024
The Technology Roadmap is NSW’s headline transport technology strategy to support the Future Transport Strategy with customer and operational technologies. It showcases Transport for NSW’s focus on customers and communities, our strong track record, our technology toolkit and six priority programs to transform our customers’ transport experience. We welcome partnerships that drive innovation and bring the Roadmap to life.
Transport’s vision is to be a top-three global leader in the use of innovative and transformative technologies to enable convenient, personalised and sustainable transport and mobility solutions for our passenger and freight customers.
To do this, we have six priority programs to deliver for 2024:
- Mobility as a Service (MaaS) – with single account payments for all modes across NSW and more partnerships with on-demand and rideshare providers, to deliver seamless and personalised journeys across all modes
- Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) – being a world-leading adopter with trials of autonomous rideshare integrated with MaaS and testing integration of vehicle sensors and infrastructure, to support safer, more efficient mobility and to be future ready
- Zero emissions vehicles – with rapid transition to zero emissions buses, expanding the electric vehicle (EV) charging network, encouraging industry to supply EVs and exploring use of hydrogen technology, to help NSW to reach net zero emissions by 2050
- Transform regional mobility – with real-time information and digital ticketing on all public transport, digital connectivity at transport hubs and on major services, smart regional cities technologies and regional-first technology trials, so regional customers can easily drive and plan, book, pay and track a wide range of services
- More efficient freight – with new supply chain data, trialling automated and sustainable last mile freight and investigating a Freight Community System, to help the freight industry improve productivity
- Sensors and intelligent transport systems (ITS) – with smart sensors on road and rail networks, artificial intelligence, advanced computing and new open data sources, for richer customer information, integrated mobility solutions, and to dynamically optimise network efficiency, service performance, incident prediction and response.
