- Can European models of public transport governance help to save Australian cities?
- Stone, John
- The paper compares public transport performance in Melbourne and Sydney with that in four cities from German-speaking Europe. This is followed by a discussion of the political and institutional factors that have contributed to this variation. In the European examples, these factors range from broad-scale issues like the re-structuring of large state monopolies such as German National Railways (Deutsche Bahn) to local processes for timetable planning employed by individual Verkehrsverbünde.
