Due to difficulties in transferring to new distribution processes at this time of the year the mail out of subscriber copies has been delayed. Subscriber copies will be in the
hands of Australia Post on Thursday 8 January.

The January issue is available from the ARHS Bookshop, Redfern,
as of Tuesday 6 January.

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.

Front Cover
On the second day of its operation, 11 November 2014, Scott Mitchell photographed Torrens Transit 1790, a CDi Bustech double decker at Adelaide Airport as it operated the Jet Express service to the CBD. It is understood that a similar, but larger in scale, operation may begin in another state soon.
