RP2021: Greening suburban transport

Project leader name: 
Associate Professor Hussein Dia, Swinburne University of Technology
Project status: 
Current
Project period: 
12/2015

This project will review international best practices and trends in the provision of high-priority, transformative initiatives to tackle the mobility challenges facing suburban communities. It will investigate travel demand drivers and determinants of possible shifts in travel behaviour, undertake sustainable transport planning studies focusing on pathways to increasing customer usage of public and active transport, and model the impacts and benefits of networked smart bus systems, on demand access to transport and emerging disruptive transport technologies. The project will also develop a framework for supporting effective investment decisions that increase the uptake of low carbon transport interventions.
