dc.description.abstract This Masters’ Thesis has evolved as an iterative learning process driven initially by the compilation and understanding of transportation usage data. The research phase began with a clear goal to understand the historical context of transportation modal share. The initial objective and scope of the research was therefore to collate as much data as possible to deliver an understanding of the recent trends in Sydney and Perth. This data built on the “Transportation / Land Use Cycle” theories which were evident in my Capstone Project work. The scope of the data collection was to discover statistically significant trends such as links between:- • Accessibility to the CBD and trip generation; • Accessibility to transportation options (socio-economic status and urban location) and its impact on public transport usage; • Whether the purpose of the trip had an impact on the mode chosen; and • Whether household composition and dwelling densities had an impact on motor vehicle usage.
