This report examines current and future developments in the use of automation and new energy sources in land-based mass transit, including rail and road mass transit, point-to-point transport using automated vehicles, and the role and responsibilities of the Commonwealth in the development of these technologies....
This paper focuses particularly on the “how” to improve services by laying out the rationale and steps for cities to achieve bus sector reforms. This includes case studies, examples and illustrations.
Classifying train stations into typologies is a useful way to simplify their complex characteristics to assess their potential to become Transit Oriented Developments (TODs). This research explores the walkability of 230 train stations in metropolitan Melbourne, Australia using fourteen different walkability measures.
The 30-year vision detailed in this draft strategy shows how the Queensland government plans to harness emerging transport trends to continue to move people and products safely and efficiently into the future.

Electric buses (e-buses) can help cities address air quality issues and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (along with a clean grid). However, the transition to e-buses has been subject to growing pains. This report identifies some of the largest and most common barriers to e-bus adoption....
This report is based on lessons learned from 16 cities that are working toward electrifying their bus transit fleets. It provides background information on e-buses and offers a planning and implementation framework for cities with varying levels of experience in e-bus adoption.
