Tourism and Public Transport

Tourism and Public Transport

Tourism provides a large net gain to the Victorian economy and the Tourism industry is seeking ways to improve access to the many tourism venues in Melbourne and regionally. Tourists (and other visitors) have special needs when it comes to being able to conveniently use public transport and these needs are often different from commuters’. This project aims to improve how the public transport network caters for international and domestic tourists by understanding the role of discovery, as a motivator of travel, and the implications this has for public transport use.

This project is part of the Sustainable and Effective Public Transport – Graduate Research Industry Partnership (SEPT-GRIP) and is supervised by Dr Vicki Peel. The project is being undertaken by Victoria Radnell and is sponsored by Public Transport Victoria and Monash University.
