National Active Transport Fund

The Albanese Government is investing to ensure our cities and regional centres across the country are more liveable, active and connected.  

At the upcoming Budget, we are committing $100 million to a new national Active Transport Fund that will upgrade and deliver new bicycle and walking paths.

This will support zero emissions travel, provide a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians, and promote active and liveable communities.

The program guidelines will be developed in consultation with states and territories are expected to be made public ahead of a 1 July 2025 start.

Safe and accessible active transport options, like walking and cycling, help boost social connection, promote healthy choices and make our cities and regions more vibrant places to live.

That’s why the Albanese Government is investing in the infrastructure that helps people get to school, work and local services safely without needing to jump in the car.

We are getting on with delivering a better future for all Australians, one made in Australia that builds economic opportunity and thriving communities 

Quotes attributable to Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King:

“We want communities to thrive whether they be in cities or in the regions.

“We are investing to build economic opportunity and also the opportunity for people to enjoy the spaces and places they live in, building connection and improving safety.”
