What do we stand for

More transport options

Improving SA’s public and active transport options will help reduce emissions.

More on-demand bus services

  • RAA supports on-demand bus services, which are a flexible public transport option to help commuters reach major bus and train interchanges.
  • On-demand bus services involve booking a ride in advance and requesting a pick-up and drop-off location, rather than following a fixed route, much as one would do with a taxi or Uber service.
  • RAA supports permanent on-demand bus services within Mount Barker and trialling on-demand buses in the Victor Harbor-Goolwa area.

Safer cycling routes

  • SA has one of the lowest levels of cycling participation in the country, due to safety concerns and a lack of connected infrastructure.
  • RAA supports finalisation and implementation of the State Cycling Strategy, including a mapped metropolitan priority cycling network, underpinned by a $10 million annual State Government investment in the State Bicycle Fund.
  • Ongoing investment in cycling infrastructure, including new and upgraded dedicated bike lanes or cycling paths, is required to attract new cyclists and encourage more frequent cycling.
  • As part of this, RAA has identified a range of priority projects, including:
    • Completion of the Gawler Greenway,
    • A bridge connecting the Royal Adelaide Hospital to the River Torrens Linear Path
    • Connection of regional cycling trails to deliver the Great Australian Wine Trail between the Clare Valley and McLaren Vale.

Legalising private e-scooters

  • RAA supports the use of private e-scooters on public land in South Australia and they provide a great first-and-last-mile active transport solution.
  • A recent RAA survey (May 2023) found 70% of our members support the public use of private e-scooters.
  • The State Government is currently considering a future framework for private e-scooters and we will seek to work with the Government on the final model.
