Yep, as much as we all like our own personal vehicles, if we are truly want the most effective, environmentally responsible form of transport, public transport is it. It will be a big ask for everyone in urban areas to give up their cars and just as much of a challenge to redesign our cities with public transport in mind.^^^^ THAT is the solution. Effective public transport is the only way, at least for major cities. Just supplanting our current ICE fleet for an EV fleet = planet still fucked, probably even more so given the enormous environmental costs involved in manufacturing new vehicles and disposing of the old ones.
Tassie is not all that urban but public transport is still pretty poor.
