Bus routes are a major offender for lack of inter-suburb travel? Which tram or train line is not headed to/from the city?ChillyPhilly wrote: - Bus routes are a major offender to poor PT services: there is a lack of practical cross-city and inter-suburb travel options because of the above reason.
- On the other hand, the above issue of poor inter-suburb travel is not helped by suburbs in Adelaide's north and north-east, which are incredibly difficult to service given the car-centric design and layout and lack of walkability.
North-east has the highest PT usage, how is the design of it difficult to service yet has better numbers than anywhere else?
Something does not add up. Seems suburbs in the South, East and West have some kind of design problem that leads to less users using PT.
What next we go back to arguing that the O-Bahn is a failure because it is not a train or tram?
Look to what works, eg the north-east, and do more of that.
Look to what has failed, eg South, East and West, and do less of that.
