Abstract

The objective of this paper is to examine the planning issues relating to parking and access around transit nodes. It reviews Perth's current strategy of providing park-and-ride facilities and promoting transit oriented developments. The paper is based on review of planning documents, site visits and interviews with planners from the local council and Public Transit Authority in Perth. Using a case study of suburban railway station in Murdoch, the paper identifies a number of planning challenges such as congestion in park-and-ride facilities, spill-over parking in surrounding neighbourhoods, poor access by walking and cycling, and public safety concerns. The paper discusses ways to improve the situation by prioritising access to transit nodes through various means of transport (walking, cycling, buses) rather than just focussing on provision of more car parking spaces. Other measures include discouraging free park-and-ride facilities, provision of reliable, frequent feeder bus services and preparation of an integrated local transport plan for the area around transit nodes.
