AbstractPerth has seen strong investment in public transport infrastructure compared with its pastapproach of a city designed for mobility by car. Designing a transport system to compete with thecar in a low-density city has raised significant challenges. The planning and routing of Perth?snewest passenger railway has been strongly grounded in land use planning with active pursuit ofopportunities for transit-oriented development (TOD). This has resulted in different models ofintegration from TODs designed around walk-on patronage, to TODs designed to calm hostilecar-based environments, to transit-transfer stations relying on state transit agency coordinationbetween transport modes to maximize the attractiveness of the public transport travel. This paperexamines the opportunities and constraints presented by each model.
