All modes are not equal: how to provide priority for public transport but still account for others

The Victorian Government is aiming to increase public transport usage to 20 per cent of motorised trips by 2020. An increase in public transport priority on the road network has been initiated to contribute to this. This increase in priority has brought to the forefront the issue of competing demands for road space and time between different modes. In other words, it raises the question: "How do we provide priority for public transport, but still be accountable for other road users?" This paper focuses on how VicRoads is addressing the Victorian Government's public transport agenda, and is tackling the issue of an increase in public transport priority that can adversely affect other modes. The frameworks that have been developed will continue to be refined. However, it is considered that they will be useful to other road authorities, or transport planners, to assist in evaluating competing demand issues between different modes.
