Enabling Smart City Transport: A guide for local councils

Enabling Smart City Transport: A guide for local councils

Australia’s local councils are at the forefront of transport management and play a vital role in the continued operation of the economy.

Problem: Change and constraints

Councils are now tasked with transport network management, and this includes ensuring transport problems do not restrict essential services. While LGAs work with state and federal agencies to apply investments in better infrastructure, they also must deal with the immediacy of citizen transport experiences.

With the right investments and approaches to transportation management, councils can increase efficiencies, improve resident experiences, and maintain compliance and safety.

In addition to working with limited funding, councils are challenged by the rising volume of transport journeys – including new modes such as electric vehicles and scooters – entering the largely fixed capacity network.

Solution: Utilise existing capacity with new technology

Building more capacity is an ongoing imperative; however, councils now also have the option of using  advanced IoT and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to vastly improve the use of the network capacity already in place.

Smart transport solutions deliver many benefits to LGAs, including a better resident experience, more  infrastructure efficiency, and safer, more compliant transport management.

The significance of councils’ role in transport is massive. Every day, more than 650,000 people work to keep our economy moving in an industry valued at around $83 billion. Everything from parcel deliveries to patient care depends on an efficient transportation network, and any improvement in transport that councils can make has a ripple effect on the whole economy.
