Long distance passenger transport: The Australian experience

  • G. K. R. Reid


The aim of this paper is to give a short but comprehensive review of the development, current nature and future of long distance passenger transport in Australia. Although the slant of the paper is essentially economic, data limitations for parts of some modes preclude a more technical analysis than the essentially descriptive approach followed. The paper is entitled Long Distance Passenger Transport because in Australia intercity transport is the dominant component of long distance passenger transport.
