Description

What is EcoTransit?

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. Urban freeway development that entrenches prolific car use does not support EcoTransit based economies and cities.

EcoTransit Sydney is a public transport advocacy group operating out of Sydney. We are a not-for profit organisation made up of volunteers dedicated to the promotion of EcoTransit development.

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.

EcoTransit Sydney is dedicated to the preservation of Sydney’s natural environment and heritage areas.
