Public transport plays an integral part in order to enhance the living standards of a community. A batter transport system ensures the welfare of that area and it also gives the people to commute in a more proper and less horrific manner in terms of transport.
Australia has one of the most advanced transport systems in the world, but no system is deemed perfect and with the massive transport systems working in the major cities of Australia there is still room for a lot of improvement in this particular sector, for this purpose the minister for roads Victoria and the relevant institutes are trying to improve the efficiency and working of this system.
Here are a few ways through which transportation can be improved.
Interchanges and integrated tickets
Well devised and planned channels of interchanges focuses on connecting outer areas to the central part of the city. It helps to control the mass transit and traffic load. And it also provides an alternative routes to move from one place to another. The other thing is that integrated tickets should be allotted to improve the transportation system. In this way people won’t have to buy different tickets while going on the same route, just like the system used in the metro bus system where you just get the ticket and reach your destination.
Use of smart card, frequent service and system data
Use of smart cards can increase the efficiency and the working of the transportation in the cities. Use of these cards will help people get around the concepts of waiting in ticket lines and the issue of time management. All in all if these cards are used to their full capacity and efficiency they can help people to move around more easily. Timetable frequent services is another way to lead to a better and an efficient transport system. Most people don’t bother looking at the real time schedule of the transport and then they start to face issues regarding the time and the schedule of the transportation services. So by updating real time schedules and by making them available to people these issues can be tackled efficiently. Sydney’s public transport system is uploaded on Google maps and is updated regularly making it a lot easier for the people to use the transportation. However this could no be achieved on the larger scale, if this system can be implemented if not all around Australia but in the major cities where the transport is under pressure all the time then it can increase the efficiency of this mass transit.
So in order to make a soothing and a more reliable transport system in Australia these steps need to be taken to ensure the efficiency and the upbringing of the public transport system.
