On-demand public transport has now provided over 1 million rides in 36 trials in various Australian cities. Is the problem of poor suburban public transport on the way to being solved?
Fare free public transport exists in at least 98 cities and towns around the world.
Only the inner suburbs of Melbourne and other capital cities meet the 20-minute neighbourhood test. But we could transform the other suburbs for much less than the cost of current transport projects.
The neighbourhoods of Paris, Barcelona and Amsterdam with densities 3-5 times those of Melbourne and Sydney offer an insight into how we could transform our cities for the better.
A national consultation may (legally) bring e-scooters to UK cities.
To get 'system change not climate change', we need to start making specific demands. Here's where to start.
Biodiversity, public transport and home insulation loom large in Labour's flagship programme for green governance.
A whole range of social and technological changes could revolutionise how we travel in the coming decades.
The future of zero-carbon transport starts today. First stop, Britain's railways.
Installing light rail is costly, as Sydney has found, but it's the gold standard for public transport along road corridors. What trackless trams can do is rapidly expand such services at low cost.
We just need shops, cafes and other services within easy reach to get us walking extra minutes in our busy days.
The foundations of orderliness for any city are planning and management. Lagos had this in place in the early days.
Two-thirds of surveyed workers work from home one day a week on average, but could do at least half their work out of the workplace. If they commuted less often, congestion could be greatly reduced.
Late trains, anxiety, stressful commutes, disruption to family life – just some of the woes of train customers.
A program aimed at getting people home safely has cost A$300 million but has had little impact, aside from increased intoxication in CBD venues. Rates of assaults and road crashes are much the same.
How many opportunities you can reach depends on where you live and how you travel. A new report maps accessibility for our eight capital cities by car, public transport, cycling and walking.
More than half a century after the first high-speed trains began running overseas, Australia is still waiting for the long-promised service. Right now, faster rail is a better short-term prospect.
Driverless cars will form a fast, efficient transport network, which will make car ownership redundant. But they could also spell the end of public transport.
The car revolutionised the way people travel – but at a heavy cost. Now, car-free cities will only work when there's reliable public transit and access for all.
Traffic impact assessments required of major building developments mainly focus on the movement of cars, but these account for only 30-40% of trips by inner-city apartment dwellers.
