This Working Paper reports on contract research commissioned by the Policy & Planning Unit of the Traffic & Transport Branch of the Brisbane City Council (BCC). In this report we identify likely determinants of demand for PT in the future, as well as the relative importance of the major factors influencing mode choice.

From a comprehensive set of influencing factors, the major determinants of PT mode share capture are identified based on past market research from Brisbane and elsewhere. Section 2 of the current report discusses the available evidence on the general attitudes to PT both in Brisbane and elsewhere. Section 3 presents a discussion of the main factors that have been found to affect PT mode choice. Finally, the most prominent influencing factors are prioritised in the context of future PT demand in Brisbane.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
