Balancing Infrastructure Reinvestment with System Expansion

This digest summarizes the mission performed from October 17 to November 1, 2008, under Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Project J-03, "International Transit Studies Program." The digest is an overview of a study mission that investigated how public transport agencies in Australia are balancing the need to increase capacity and expand service while maintaining and upgrading their existing infrastructure (bus, tram, rail, and ferry). Team members met with public transport officials, government planners, and transit advocates in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, and Brisbane. The digest is based on individual reports prepared by the mission team members. A list of study team members is included in Appendix A. A list of the public transport agencies and organizations with whom the team met is included in Appendix B.
