A seminar co-hosted by the RMIT Urban Research Centre and the European Union Centre looks at how European cities manage public transport and land use integration.
The concept of transit-oriented development is often attributed to a European planning tradition. But are all European cities necessarily world leaders in the co-evolution of public transport systems and urban form? In this talk, we will explore the comparative results from the application of the Spatial Network Analysis for Multimodal Urban Transport Systems (SNAMUTS) tool to eleven European case study cities, highlight their strengths and weaknesses in providing sustainable accessibility throughout their metro regions, and reflect on the lessons these experiences might hold in an Australian context.
