In the last ten years, transit use in Southern California has fallen significantly. This report investigates that falling transit use. The authors examined patterns of transit service and patronage over time and across the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) region, and consider an array...
This report compares the fuel efficiency of 20 airlines operating nonstop flights between the mainland United States and East Asia and Oceania. It extends the previous transatlantic fuel efficiency methodology to the transpacific market.

There is an opportunity for traditional public transit agencies to leverage the potential of flexible route, on-demand microtransit.
The idea of self-driving and electrified vehicles is gaining acceptance among global consumers, but is this enough to make our utopian dreams come true?
This report argues that while emissions from transport have historically risen with economic growth, modal shift away from motor vehicle travel, a reduction in trips and trip lengths, and increased energy efficiency offer pathways for emission reductions.
The Victorian government has a new plan to get more people cycling to work, school and around their local neighbourhood.
Research identifies that resilience, not just efficiency, should be considered explicitly in roadway project selection and justify investment opportunities related to disaster and other disruptions.
This report examines whether the level crossing removal project is cost-effective in terms of whether it has improved, or is expected to improve, the safety and efficiency of the state’s road and rail network.
Self-driving cars are the next technological revolution we will face in the future. These vehicles will not only need to ‘see’ the world, but will also need to communicate and work together.
This study reviewed recent literature and data to synthesise the following Safe System intersection design principles: minimise conflict points, remove/simplify road user decisions, minimise impact angles, and minimise entry and impact speeds.
This report outlines deep concerns with planning and governance for the proposed West Gate Tunnel Project (WGTP) and, by extension, with the wider context for transport planning in Victoria.
This guide, developed by practitioners from cities across North America, sets an 'all ages and abilities' criteria for selecting and implementing bike facilities.
Beyond the benefits of dockless bike sharing for people’s mobility and health, these services are producing an ever more useful byproduct: journey data, which could be a powerful tool for city planners and policymakers
Trips to and from public transit are called "last mile" trips, and are arguably one of the most important for pedestrians and the smooth functioning of public transit systems.
This guide seeks to encourage policy makers, planners, designers, and operators to think beyond compliance and the physical and governance boundaries of services and infrastructure, and focus instead on people's accessibility needs across the whole of their public transport journey.
