Not forgetting the increased popularity of home delivery. Not everyone needs a car to do their weekly shop any more.

I live in Croydon and as a family we use the train loads (plus bikes where possible). We have one car and probably only do 5-7,000km in that every year. It's perfectly possible to rely heavily on PT if you live near enough to it which, as cmet touched on above, is can be a problem in Adelaide.

As I've said before, I think type of PT is important too - I suspect people living near tram and train routes will be more inclined to use it. I'd probably use the car a lot more if we were only served by buses. I would suspect the AdeLINK tram network would have increased patronage significantly - especially as more and more amenities were built near tram stops. I hope it resurfaces in some form in the future.
I can't think of a supermarket anywhere along the Gawler railway line that I would consider convenient to access to do shopping by train, even if I lived across the street from a station. We have walked to the (local smaller) Woolworths with a "nanna trolley" to get exercise and mental health at the same time, but I can't imagine either of us doing that with a train or bus journey in the middle.

Found a souvenir pin of the Adelaide Aquatic Centre from the 1990s on eBay!
