Transport infrastructure and local travel

Urban and city renewal means Canberra is thriving. Getting around the city is straight forward. Travel times are much shorter than in other Australian capital cities.

We’ve expanded our city’s transport options, adding a light rail network, so you have even more ways to get around.

Infrastructure investment

We’re proud of our:

  • new UNSW university campus
  • new University of Canberra hospital
  • regional freight service through our upgraded international airport

Technology infrastructure

Canberra is one of the most progressive cities in the world; always open to new technology. We have:

  • Australia’s largest deployment of free WiFi for public use
  • smart streetlights
  • smart parking with real-time availability and payment
  • ‘digital backpacks’ for students to give them online learning and resource capability
