PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN THE ADELAIDE METROPOLITAN REGION
The metropolitan Adelaide area is relatively uncongested for a city of its size. Current and predicted future expansion is on a north-south axis. In planning transportation for the area, objectives include maintaining the environmental quality of the area, using existing facilities fully, and keeping costs at a level justifiable on an economic basis. At present, public transport is most used during peak periods. This pattern is expected to continue. It is to be encouraged in order to avoid traffic congestion at these hours. Fare and parking policies will be used to accomplish this. The five-year transport plan will bring the existing network to a standard necessary to serve the existing city. This includes electrification of some routes, vehicle purchases, and rail extensions. Further expansion will be made in the long-term (thirty year) program.
