Public Transportation Systems

Public Transportation Systems (PTS) is a research group from Australia and abroad. PTS interlinks academia with industry through collaborative research that focuses on making cities accessible to its citizens through smart transport systems for smart cities.

Our research is a collaborative effort that aims to harness expertise from academics in Australia and abroad, industry and other stakeholders. The research is focused on sustainable urban mobility in a smart city through developing and evaluating new solutions and policy pathways for smart urban transport systems that are connected, transparent and digital. 

Our research includes:

  • Urban rail infrastructure and future demand
  • Sustainability factors and system dynamics of rail projects

  • Shared and emerging mobility
  • Optimised road networks
