City of Perth Public Transport Accessibility Strategy

Hay Street Sign

The City of Perth (the City) is currently developing and Integrated Transport Strategy (ITS) which will establish Council’s long term transport goals and provide a strategic, informed platform for future decision making. In developing this long term strategy the City wish to develop a research evidence-based understanding of the accessibility provided by the public transport network in Perth. The purpose of this research is to apply the Spatial Network Analysis for Multimodal Urban Transport Systems (SNAMUTS) interactive decision tool to assist in examining the performance of the land use and public transport network in order to inform the development of the City of Perth’s Integrated Transport Strategy. Accessibility is measured at 2015 and for three scenarios: 2031 no action; 2031 public transport committed projects; 2050 accessibility optimisation.
