A report has been commissioned by TWUSUPER which explores the transport industry now and into the future. The report has been developed by economists Jim Stanford and Matt Grudnoff, from The Centre for Future Work at the Australia Institute.

The report describes an $80 billion GDP (value-added) industry employing some 625,000 Australians and on the cusp of change. Some parts of the transport industry are more immune to change than others – so the report provides insights into the technology and overlay of social acceptance and policy that can shape the future.
