Electrifying transport needs bigger changes than another high-end electric car.

We need to create a transport system that is zero carbon – and socially just – in only a few years. We just need to recognise that it's possible.
Many vehicles can’t just be powered by battery.
We can't decarbonise the whole transport sector with just batteries - sustainable fuels are essential.
Parcel delivery vehicles makeup a small fraction of commercial traffic in our cities.
Parcel and courier delivery vehicles are often blamed for traffic congestion in our cities. But they're only a fraction of the traffic caused by tradespeople and other services.

We've spent years publishing smart, practical research on real climate solutions. Now it's time to put it all into practice.
Could Knight Rider's KITT finally be on the horizon?
A substantial building programme is needed to rearrange our cities to benefit all types of journeys – not just commutes.
Australia and Russia could soon be the last remaining developed nations without fuel efficiency standards, with New Zealand proposing new rules and financial incentives to get more people driving cleaner cars.
New Zealand has proposed new fuel standards, along with a consumer rebates for cleaner cars – paid for by higher costs for high-polluting cars – to cut its rising transport emissions.
Turning from the conflict of airport expansions to a vision of a low-carbon transport system.
The real work starts now.

Brexit should not be Johnson's sole focus if he wants to re-engage the disaffected voters he'll need to bring on side in a general election.
How far would you go to limit your carbon footprint?
It won’t be long before many cities find life without a car even easier, and possibly even cheaper.
From Apple Music to Netflix, subscription services are on the rise. It's time transport followed suit.
Perth has the most jobs and workers reachable by car within 30 minutes because of the speed of travel on its road network.
How many opportunities you can reach depends on where you live and how you travel. A new report maps accessibility for our eight capital cities by car, public transport, cycling and walking.
Children are the future, so why don't we listen to them more often?
VLocity trains run at speeds of up to 160km/h on four Victorian regional lines.
More than half a century after the first high-speed trains began running overseas, Australia is still waiting for the long-promised service. Right now, faster rail is a better short-term prospect.
Analysing big data can tell us how a big city ticks, including where suitable housing and jobs are, and how best to get to them.
We have learnt to be wary of big data, but it can also be your friend: one platform combines and analyses data about housing, jobs and transport to reveal very useful information about living in Perth.
Having fun yet?
Despite efforts to encourage a shift to sustainable transportation, traffic congestion is often the focus of debates over mobility. Motorists endlessly demand more roads, but is this really a solution?
These streets are made for walking.
The car revolutionised the way people travel – but at a heavy cost. Now, car-free cities will only work when there's reliable public transit and access for all.

When it comes to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from transport, the future is already here on small islands.
The current system drives social injustice and environmental destruction, a new approach to address both is called for.
