Zero emission transition for Melbourne

As electric vehicles continue to grow in popularity and a move toward a sustainable environmentally friendly transport system is established, research by University of Melbourne’s Senior Lecturer in Transport Planning, Dr John Stone, says offering alternatives to driving is essential for Melburnians living in car-dependent suburbs. How to address rising transport emissions and living costs is to re-invent our broken bus system for the 21st century. His paper, ‘Better Buses for Melbourne’s West’ and ‘Melbourne’s Zero Emission Bus Transition’ shows how transitioning to clean electric buses operating on a fast, frequent, connected network gets us where we want to go.
