Perth has the most jobs and workers reachable by car within 30 minutes because of the speed of travel on its road network.
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.
Children are the future, so why don't we listen to them more often?
VLocity trains run at speeds of up to 160km/h on four Victorian regional lines.
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.
Analysing big data can tell us how a big city ticks, including where suitable housing and jobs are, and how best to get to them.
We have learnt to be wary of big data, but it can also be your friend: one platform combines and analyses data about housing, jobs and transport to reveal very useful information about living in Perth.

Despite efforts to encourage a shift to sustainable transportation, traffic congestion is often the focus of debates over mobility. Motorists endlessly demand more roads, but is this really a solution?
These streets are made for walking.
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.

Every day, e-scooters and helmets are put out together, but some people ride without helmets and at the end of each day helmets are missing. So what can be done to ensure safe riding behaviour?
The exploding popularity of e-scooters could reshape mobility in our cities. Regulators need to adapt their approaches to handle the innovation rather than ban it altogether.
The exploding popularity of e-scooters has the potential to reshape transport in our cities. Regulators need to adapt their approaches to handle the new mobility service rather than ban it altogether.

Labor's ambitious plans to reduce transport emissions will be dead in the water without regulatory CO2 emission standards and real financial and non-financial incentives for buyers.
Using driverless cars to get from A to B in the future will mean more free time to do other activities – but will people really use it productively?
In England, one in fifty children cycle to school. But if English children cycled at the same rates as Dutch children, this could rise to two in five.
A race to dominate the emerging tech-driven mobility sector is happening in cities around the world.
Investment is pouring into urban technology, much of it into innovative ventures that aim to transform how we get around our cities.
Urgent and radical change in urban transport policies and practices will benefit the planet and future generations.
To cut emissions within the 12 years or so we have left to avoid disastrous global warming, we will need to change our old transport habits, using a combination of strategies to achieve this.
Transport promises stretching as far as the eye can see: Victorian Labor’s big one is a $A50 billion suburban rail loop.
Whichever party wins, Victoria's new government will have promised the biggest transport infrastructure project in Australian history. So what are the promises and are they backed by proper assessment?
Road crashes and deaths are a grim daily reality all over the world.
Road traffic injuries are one of the leading causes of death worldwide.
Another election, another infrastructure promise – in the Andrews government’s case, a $50 billion suburban rail loop.
In the election bidding wars, parties commit billions to transport projects, often before all the work needed to justify these has been done. More cost-effective alternatives hardly get a look-in.
Project managers are the forgotten heroes of major building projects across the world.
