Welcome to WikiProject Australian Transport. This project is dedicated to improving coverage of topics related to Transport in Australia. If you have any questions, either leave a message at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Australian Transport, or reach out to one of the members below.



Anything related to Transport in Australia is considered to be under the scope of the project. Anything under Category:Transport in Australia and its subcategories will likely be within the scope of the project. This includes all modes of transport, and not just public transport.

Our goals

  • To provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of transport in Australia.
  • To improve Wikipedia's coverage of Australian transport by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles in a fair and accurate manner.
  • To serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to Australian transport in Wikipedia.
  • To expand and improve existing articles, and bring some to GA or FA status.

To do

  • Add |transport=yes to {{WikiProject Australia}} on all relevant pages
  • Engage in policy, naming suggestions and article format consistency regarding Australian transport.
    • Adopt a list of reliable sources for Australian transport-related articles.
  • Engage with WikiProject Australia and WikiProject Transport and bring in editors from them.
  • Determine the notability of articles within the project at AfD, and add reliable sources if possible.
