Council with GTA Consultants has developed a Public Transport Gap Analysis and Advocacy Reference Document. The Document was endorsed for consultation by Council on Tuesday 9 April.

Glen Eira is one of the highest commuting municipalities in the State with approximately 80 per cent of our residents working outside Glen Eira and 66 per cent commuting to work by car. The Integrated Transport Strategy which was adopted by Council on 12 June 2018 has set the goal to ‘strive for a 50:50 mode share of car and non-car trips by 2031’. This goal aims to provide alternate transport options to vehicle use to help relieve congestion and improve wellbeing.

To assist in achieving this goal a public transport gap analysis has been prepared to assess the current state of public transport availability and accessibility across the municipality. This will highlight where areas of improvement can be made to increase the share of trips undertaken on public transport. This will also comprise an accompanying advocacy reference document that will inform Council’s transport advocacy efforts with the State Government over the next four years.

Council has committed to undertaking a gap analysis on public transport availability and accessibility across the municipality, as outlined in the Glen Eira Council and Community Plan 2018–19 — Commitments.
