Our project goal was to provide recommendations for improving the efficiency, equity, and sustainability of Greater Melbourne’s bus system. We interviewed experts, conducted a spatial analysis to supplement a satisfaction survey distributed to riders, and completed cost-benefit and life-cycle analyses of electric buses. Our findings provided Friends of the Earth Melbourne and the Public Transport Users Association with suggestions for improving the bus system’s equity and efficiency, as well as statistics supporting Melbourne’s switch to a fully electric fleet.
