Outer Urban Public Transport: Improving accessibility in lower-density areas
Outer Urban Public Transport: Improving accessibility in lower-density areas is the seventh paper in Infrastructure Australia's Reform Series.
The paper assesses the quality and accessibility of public transport services in Australia’s five largest cities. The paper reveals the extent of public transport disadvantage in some areas compared to others and the impact on travel patterns and liveability.
Outer Urban Public Transport presents a reform agenda for improving public transport in outer urban areas and for adapting our public transport networks to better service low-density areas, building on recommendations from the 2016 Australian Infrastructure Plan and the 2018 Future Cities paper.
