Final Report
Summary:
This project seeks to review international best practices in urban transport systems that have achieved a high degree of integration, and having assessed the status of integrated transport in Australia´s four largest cities (Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney), to determine lessons to apply to the Australian cities.

Specifically, the project´s goals and objectives of are: To provide a systematic review of the successful integration of collective transport modes, and integration of planning for collective and individualised transport, in Australia and internationally; To identify suitable case studies for deeper investigation and to review and analyse the literature on these case studies; Through the available literature, to conduct an initial exploration of the institutional developments that led to these examples of successful integration, including political interventions; To inform key urban transport decision makers in Australia of these examples and their institutional contexts and history; To refocus debate in transport planning in Australia on public and community transport solutions; and To contribute to a theoretical account of the institutional dimensions of transport planning.
