Transport for NSW’s Travel Demand Management (TDM) in New South Wales series continues exploring the impacts and influences that TDM has on the movement of people through changes to transport networks, travel behaviour, workplaces and city planning.
Our final session looks at the latest cutting-edge research into remote working and the subsequent implications for demand management on the transport network. Academics from Transport for NSW’s Research and Investigation teams, the University of Sydney and the University of South Australia share their research projects, and preliminary findings, diving deep into the latest data, international research, surveys and models; to understand how working from home has changed since the Covid-19 Pandemic and what the implications could be for travel demand and transport networks going forward.
Session highlights include:
1. IMOVE research projects at Transport for NSW - Sherri Fields, Senior Manager University & Research Partnerships, Transport for NSW
Sherri provides an insightful overview of Transport for NSW’s current and upcoming research projects and partnerships and why these areas of research are so important for Transport professionals.
2. Encouraging the continuation of work-from-home practices in a post-pandemic world - Dr Helen Barrie, Senior Research Fellow, University South Australia
Helen presents final research findings based on a survey of 3,853 Australian employees and managers and qualitative interviews with around 50 Australian businesses to identify:
3. Working from Home and Implications for Revising Metropolitan Strategic Transport Models - Professor David Hensher, University of Sydney
Professor Hensher updates the research partnership to evaluate the varying impacts of WFH practices across Australia and enables benchmarking for Transport for NSW to improve its strategic transport models to better account for WFH impacts. In this session, Professor Hensher explores the latest wave of findings and explores some of the possible implications for what they could mean for travel demand, transport networks and models in the future. This longitudinal study aims to understand the changing implications for transport networks, travel behaviour, and demand modelling as we interpret responses from employers and employees to working from home over time until we reach some equilibrium.
