Dr Paul Mees, interesting chat ..  rough dot points ...

  • Centralised control - planning
  • Integrated tickets
  • Transfers - free
  • Feeders
  • Spiderwebs compared to star (radial) Oz model
  • Some European regions do match densities in Oz capitals, proper integration can work in our cities.  Density used as an excuse for failure. Canadian cities similar densities to Oz, do better with PT
  • Design transport systems that are usable
  • Pressure from all to change the 'status quo'

Prior to becoming an academic, he worked as a lawyer. Paul is one of Australia’s leading experts on urban public transport, and his work is internationally influential: for example, it provided the basis for the European Union’s 2005 HiTrans project on improving public transport in medium-sized cities and towns (www.hitrans.org).
