Adelaide’s Transport – Rail, Air, Bus, Car | Biocity Studio


Published on

The main form of transportation in Adelaide is rail, air, bus and car. Adelaide has a well-defined city layout, with multi lane roads. It was once called the 20 minute city, but not for much longer. Morning peak hour traffic has risen by 30% since 1997. The private car increases urban air pollution, green house gases and ozone layer depletion. Forty private cars are equals to one bus. If transport was improved in the city this would help decrease pollution problems.
