This informative presentation provided a clear and detailed analysis of the capacity impacts, and how to cope with these, of a range of distancing scenarios that could be achieved on public transport (buses, trams and trains) in Australia, as the country starts to recover and transition to a “new normal” (whatever that may be), as people return to using PT after the COVID-19 social lockdown at home.
The presentation from 13 May provided a comprehensive overview of On-Demand Transport (or Demand Responsive Transport) services which are regaining popularity and are extending shared public transport (PT) services to users and roles that are not well covered by large scale integrated public transport services in urban areas. New technologies and data sources have facilitated this renewed interest.
A month ago, I did something that is now highly illegal and has caused our planet a lot of problems. That thing was travelling. I flew over to New Zealand and attended the Transportations Group Conference. Over 200 people from across New Zealand and other parts of the world attended. Luckily, the conference was held the week before the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions came into place for both Australia and New Zealand.
