This dissertation is an attempt to provide a causal explanation for the changes in demand for public transport in Hobart which have occurred during the past
two decades, with the use of an econometric model.In Chapter l the need for a reappraisal of
existing and future plans for road construction in the
city areas is examined, followed by a brief discussion
of the ways in which the results obtained from this
study may be found useful.The second chapter is concerned with a review of
three models of the demand for public transport which have
been proposed by Australian and overseas authors.Each
model considered was an extension of the traditional
consumer demand theory, with demand depending on price and
income; however certain other behavioural hypotheses are
included in each of these models and their contributions
are assessed.
