TAP3 projects strive to achieve maximum social, economic and environmental outcomes and value for money. The approach to embedding sustainability on the TAP 3 program is to look at the main activities of the program and identify sustainability opportunities and outcomes.

While the scope of the TAP 3 program will focus on upgrades to meet Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) requirements, the upgrades may also facilitate the use of public transport by:

    • Enabling more people to transfer from using private vehicles to public transport by making stations more accessible;
    • Designing interchanges to enable people to access stations by sustainable and healthy modes such as walking and cycling and by bus;
    • Providing accessible parking at stations to enable trains to be used for most of the journey instead of driving the whole journey.
