Overview of Transit Research at Monash - Focus on Hot Collaboration Topics with TU Delft Smart PT Lab - by Professor Graham Currie [slides]
This presentation starts with an overview of Public Transport research at Monash University, then focuses on recent research at Monash which has been identified as hot topics for collaboration with TU Delft researchers. This includes the highly impactful research program on the psychology of fare evasion, research on transport disruption and social media and a range of projects run by PTRG on social equity issues in public transport and research on placemaking and trams.

Professor Currie directs the Public Transport Research Group at Monash University, which in 2015 was identified as one of the top 3 groups in the world by an independent European review of the field.  He specialises in cross disciplinary research in the field and is the world’s largest author in the field by volume of papers. He is chair of the Light Rail Transit Committee at US Transportation Research Board and a board member of the Singapore LTA Research Advisory Board. His has won numerous awards and he is the only author to win the William W. Millar award for best paper at TRB twice.

Which millennials are multi-modal? A latent class analysis of young Australians - by Dr. Alexa Delbosc [slides]
In many countries, young adults are taking longer to get a driving license, driving less and using other modes more than previous generations. These changes are often associated with delays in life stage transitions: many young adults are taking longer to finish schooling, get a full-time job, find a partner and start a family. So will millennials travel the same as previous generations as soon as they 'grow up?' This presentation explores the diversity of life courses among young adults in Australia and how they are related to their travel behaviour. A latent class analysis identified five life course segments based on how young adults see their life unfolding; only some of these segments were multi-modal transit users.

Dr. Alexa Delbosc is a Senior Lecturer at the Monash Institute of Transport Studies in the Department of Civil Engineering, and an associate of the Public Transport Research Group. She is an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher conducting a study of the changing travel behaviour of Australian millennials. She draws from her Master’s in social psychology from Harvard University and PhD in Transport from Monash University to study the intersection between the transport system, individual travel and societal quality of life.
