SOUTH AUSTRALIAN
PUBLIC TRANSPORT
AUTHORITY

Functions relating to the operation of our public
transport services are currently undertaken
within the Department of Planning, Transport and
Infrastructure (DPTI). This is one of the largest
government departments with many other
functions.

Public transport needs a strong advocate within
government for its customers and DPTI is not
providing that.


We will remove public transport operations from
DPTI by creating the South Australian Public
Transport Authority. DPTI will continue to be
responsible for infrastructure delivery, while major
public transport infrastructure planning will be
the responsibility of the new Infrastructure South
Australia agency to be created by a Marshall Liberal
Government. This separation of the planning,
services and infrastructure delivery functions is
essential for a customer-centric public transport
system.

SAPTA will be dedicated to delivering efficient
public transport services for all areas of
metropolitan Adelaide and, where feasible,
providing innovative public transport options in the
regions.

SAPTA will have a Chief Executive reporting directly
to the Minister as an advocate for existing and new
public transport customers who is not compromised
by other departmental or political priorities. A
Customer Value Proposition will be prepared
based on customer needs and evidence from best
practice research to grow patronage for the long
term, and not for short-term political agendas.
The new authority will have a ‘customer first focus’
in all its operations.

SAPTA’s mission will be to provide public transport
services which are:

• Affordable;
• Safe and secure;
• Frequent along the key corridors;
• Clean and comfortable;
• Easy to understand and use;
• Friendly with helpful drivers and staff; and
• Inclusive, including accessible to people with
mobility challenges.

We need a public transport system which:
• Provides value for money;
• Increases the number of people who can get
around our city and suburbs more efficiently;
• Creates a greater sense of community through
more opportunities for social interaction;
• Encourages the development of more homes
and businesses along major routes;
• Provides transportation for people who cannot
drive or do not have access to a car; and
• Ensures that the bus system, tram and rail
services are integrated with passenger growth
and on-time running targets as key drivers.

The functions of SAPTA will include:
• A complete review of the public transport fare
structure within 12 months with the aim of
significantly increasing patronage;
• Submitting annual operational plans for
ministerial approval;
• Specifying annual business and service
performance targets and other measures by
which to judge service performance;
• Publicly reporting annually against the
authority’s business and performance targets;
• Positive promotion of public transport as an
alternative to the car;
• Providing a single contact point for customers
wanting information about public transport
services, fares and tickets or wishing to raise
complaints or suggestions about service
delivery; and
• Undertaking regular consultation with the
public about existing public transport services
and future needs through creation of an online
advisory panel and other advanced online
engagement tools.

^ There is a slide in Peter Martinovich's paper comparing WA to Adelaide. It shows WA and SA starting from very low passenger levels and then over time the WA rail network reaching five times the patronage versus the SA rail system.

Importantly, Perth achieved all of this under very low density urban form.

Adelaide is starting to lift its rail game.  Increasing electrification eventually all lines, will more than likely convert to standard gauge once all sparked.  As electrification increases so will patronage.

Perth as we know has undergone a rail revolution of sorts. Doing the basics right!  Lots of lessons for Adelaide and SEQ!

https://strongplan.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/139-PEOPLE-FOCUSED-PUBLIC-TRANSPORT.pdf

Overview

We will:

• Create a new transit authority to be responsible
for delivery of all operational and customer
services – the South Australian Public Transport
Authority (SAPTA)

• Require SAPTA to provide recommendations
to the Government within 12 months on a new
public transport fare structure with the aim of
significantly increasing patronage

• Review and update the public transport
strategy in the Integrated Transport and Land
Use Plan (ITLUP) to remove projects that are
not practical and establish new priorities for
infrastructure and service improvements

• Immediately initiate work to provide a
righthand turn for trams at the intersection of
King William Street and North Terrace and
for the long term, plan to establish additional
tram services within the CBD that maximise
connections between focal points in the city
including the new Royal Adelaide Hospital,
the North Terrace cultural institutions, the East
End, Hutt Street and Gouger Street/Chinatown
restaurant districts and the Central Market

Not proceed with extension of tram services
to Norwood, Unley, Prospect and Adelaide
Airport via Henley Beach Road


• Investigate the use of high capacity electric
buses and a more efficient city-centre bus
interchange network

• Establish a set of public transport planning
guidelines for a simpler, more understandable
bus network that is fully integrated with train
and tram services and is focused on quality
customer outcomes including increased
convenience, frequency, comfort and reliability

• Establish a bus, tram and train network
hierarchy with frequent, regular and tailored
routes to simplify and enhance the Go Zone
concept

• Ensure much more regular and effective
community consultation about service delivery

^ It is a very well researched plan. Even more surprising it's from Blue Team.

Anyone in QLD Parliament read this?

Agreed.  Setting up a proper PT authority is smart.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC TRANSPORT AUTHORITY

Greetings,

A change of Government in South Australia!

A sound transport plan was part of the Liberal Party of SA policy.

https://strongplan.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/139-PEOPLE-FOCUSED-PUBLIC-TRANSPORT.pdf

A standout positive action is the committment to form the ' South Australian Public Transport Authority ' *[ extract below ].

This is what needs to occur in Queensland.  We suggest Public Transport Queensland.

(See > https://railbotforum.org/mbs/index.php?topic=12341.msg200901#msg200901 )

Best wishes,
Robert
