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.

New Year's Eve Transport - Brisbane
On 16 January, when up to fi ve of Melbourne's new E class trams were in service on Route
96, Greg Travers photographed E 6004 St Kilda bound at mid-morning as Citadis 3007
approached on a Route 109 service from Port Melbourne to Box Hill. The location is adjacent
to Whiteman Street, South Melbourne, and the junction of both of the light rail lines is
visible. This was the third day in Melbourne with temperatures above 40o and the trams to
the beachside suburbs saw heavy traffic.
