Researching Transit: The public transport research podcast

Most humans now live in growing cities where increasing traffic congestion risks liveability, the environment and economic productivity.  Public transport is now widely seen as a solution for mega-city growth due to its social, economic and mass travel efficiency. However the industry faces significant challenges. Infrastructure, systems and even thinking in the industry is old and out of date. Policy and regulatory structures are ‘path dependent’ on historical approaches and lack progressive thinking.  There is a global need to revitalise public transport with new knowledge and thinking to build a progressive future for the industry.

Join Professor Graham Currie and Laura Aston as they speak to world leading public transport researchers about insights aimed at addressing these challenges.
