Matt Faber brings subject matter knowledge, interpersonal relationships and practical wisdom accrued over 30 years in the NSW transport sector. Matt is known for his hands-on leadership of Greater Sydney interchange, transit and active transport initiatives through their planning, development and delivery phases, with and for NSW Government public transport and roads agencies. Matt’s present focus is on growth precinct settings where dynamic land use change, and major road and rail projects, are creating both the pressure and the opportunity to provide local access in new ways that detach urban growth from car dependence.
Matt’s recent and current projects for clients at all three levels of government include commuter car parking strategies, place-based transport plans at different scales, and the long-term analysis of urban congestion risks and responses. In previous senior roles with TfNSW and the RTA, Matt led Future Transport 2056 planning for light rail, bus, point-to-point and ferry products; drove the business case for the outer urban Bus Head Start program; and was the strategic architect for the 60km Western Sydney T-way rapid bus network.
