FCAI Response to Inquiry Into Automated Mass Transit

There is no instant solution to managing traffic congestion, however new transport technologies will play a key role in easing future congestion and mobility challenges. Whilst mass public transport will play a key role, emerging connected and autonomous vehicle technologies have the potential to increase the utility and accessibility for public transport across major urban centres.

The FCAI’s member companies recognize the potential for automated and connected vehicles to provide significant safety and environmental benefits to Australia through reductions in both conjestion and vehicle collisions.
