ATRF Conference opens in Darwin with strong Monash University presence

The 40th Australasian Transport Research Forum opened in Darwin on Tuesday 30 October, 2018. The ATRF is the principal transport research conference in Australia and New Zealand. It brings together transport researchers, policymakers, advisors and practitioners from a range of disciplines to share and build upon the latest research and thinking. Nearly one in five (17 per cent) of the papers at the conference are authored by staff and students from Monash University. Those papers cover a range of topics in public transport, active transport, travel behaviour, transport and land use as well as traffic engineering and management.
