Transit Australia Journal
The journal is unique in
that it considers all modes: Both heavy and light rail, ferry and bus,
as well as occasional feature articles focussing on information, fares
and ticketing, new technologies, accessibility and some of the political
and environmental aspects of urban passenger transport; all considered
within the context of the relationship between land use planning and transport.
