Transport Action's main objective is the promotion, advancement and development of public transportation.
The transportation industry is the largest single user of fossil fuels. Transport Action encourages the use of energy-efficient public transportation.
Over-reliance on road transportation produces a serious waste of land in rural and urban areas. Congestion, air and noise pollution, and traffic fatalities and injuries can be reduced by environmental sound public transportation.
Public transportation in rural and urban areas is often inconvenient, infrequent, slow, and sometimes non-existent. Yet private transport is often not available to the elderly, the young the disabled, those on low incomes and those who choose not to own cars. Transport Action strives to make public transport more accessible.
