EcoTransit Sydney

EcoTransit is Sydney’s public and active transport advocacy group

We are a not-for-profit organisation made up of volunteers dedicated to the promotion of EcoTransit development. We advocate improving Sydney's local environment by shifting transport from invasive modes like the private motor car that produce high levels of air, noise and water pollution to the less polluting public transport modes. We are also dedicated to the preservation of Sydney's natural environment and heritage areas.

What is EcoTransit Sydney?

EcoTransit is transport that supports a sustainable economy and environment. The less resources used by the transport sector, the more efficient our economy is and the less damage is done to the environment.
Public transport, walking and cycling fit these criteria

EcoTransit Sydney advocates improving Sydney’s local environment by shifting transport from invasive modes like the private motor car that produce high levels of air, noise and water pollution to the less polluting public transport modes. We are also dedicated to the preservation of Sydney’s natural environment and heritage areas. EcoTransit Sydney members are consultants, academics, trainspotters, bus drivers, commuters, cyclists, engineers, planners and combinations of all of the above.
