The Australian Public Transport Barometer has been developed in partnership between the Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) and L.E.K. to provide up-to-date insights about the performance of major metropolitan public transport networks in Australia. Each edition monitors public transport across Australia as well as explores the specific challenges and opportunities facing service providers.
The Barometer promotes the role of public transport in Australian capital cities and looks at how operators are achieving improvements in customer service nationwide.
In each edition of the Barometer, we examine a specific issue affecting public transport in Australia. ‘In the Spotlight’ this time observes how public transport patronage has seen different fortunes based on geographical location and mode. We explore the rising congestion levels in Australian capital cities and the subsequent impacts on public transportation.
