State-owned companies are not generally needed to provide goods. Rather, they are needed to provide the foundation for a well-functioning economy and a healthy, well-informed populace.
On average, people won't accept a commuting time of more than an hour. As cities grow ever bigger, new road projects can't achieve this, yet policymakers still rely on modelling that defies evidence.
Five million people work in the U.S. transportation sector. It's unclear where they'll end up as driverless technology takes off.
Cities are complex systems. One visible artery of the city is traffic – the cluster of moving people and flowing goods – and mobility is critical for a city's life.
Just because we've got electric supercars, doesn't mean it's the only way to a greener future.
As fierce debate rages over where to build London's next runway, we may well be missing a trick.
Instead of trying to maintain our usual routines in the face of huge disruptions, we should use them as a welcome opportunity to mix things up.
Driverless cars and the use of drones are just two things the Innovation Statement should address.
Urban planning and development in Africa has been fraught with many challenges. A study of Accra and Nairobi provides some lessons on what needs to improve.
World Car-Free day has at its heart a noble aim - but the evidence suggests that a one off event can't really make a world of difference.
The evidence is in: cars are a risk to public health, and we need to find alternatives.
With emissions targets to hit and oil running out, it's time to take electric planes seriously.
Despite futuristic predictions, planes, cars and trains haven't changed much for decades.
Innovative ideas about how to decarbonise shipping are helping to harness the original renewable power source once more.
There are cutting edge technologies on the cards, but can anything displace railways?
The resurgence of cities is set to help us make our dependence on gas-guzzling personal transport a thing of the past.
There is a new fear on the block ... traffic congestion. But do we have to accept that congestion trends will overwhelm us? Is it really right to fear congestion?
A research focus on transport can help improve existing infrastructure and guide future developments, and tailor them to Australia's unique needs.
Cars are dirty and wasteful. Large fleets of autonomous taxis could cut emissions and reduce inefficiency.
The nine science and research priorities will help focus and coordinate our efforts, and aid government departments in supporting the future of Australian science.
