A Hobart Alderman hopes light rail will be considered as part of the metropolitan area's transport needs into the next 20 years.
The Hobart 2025 strategic framework will be discussed by the council's Strategic Governance Committee today.
Jeff Briscoe says better development and urban management, protection of the environment and more efficient transport are among the main areas covered.
Alderman Briscoe says a smarter public transport system is needed, and light rail should be considered.
"As the roads become clogged up with traffic, we've got to make sure there are alternate routes so people don't become frustrated and we don't have the queues we have with traffic problems and areas in other major cities of Australia," Alderman Briscoe said.
"At the moment I think we've got a manageable system but it does need improving and light rail along the existing rail line would be an option."
