The form of a city has a major impact on the lifestyles of its residents. As urban centers grow, careful strategies are required to ensure that the regional quality of life is not adversely a€ected by this growth. An important strategic consideration is transportation planning. Questions regarding the sustain- ability of dispersed car dependent urban forms have led to a renewed interest in public transportation. This paper examines access to public transportation and discusses approaches for improving such access. Exam- ples from the South East Queensland region of Australia will be used for illustration.
