South Australia's Strategic Plan is comprised of 100 targets. These targets are specific and measurable and enable us to measure our progress towards achieving the Plan's visions and goals.

Each target is reported on through this section of the website. Data has been updated as at December 2017.


63. Use of public transport:

Increase the use of public transport to 10% of metropolitan weekday passenger vehicle kilometres travelled by 2018

Key Measure


Explanatory Comments

The estimated metropolitan public transport patronage in 2016-17 was 8.2 per cent of total public transport and car use. 

This is an increase of 1.4 percent from 2014‑15 due to a number of factors, including the decrease in the ABS’s estimate of private vehicle travel in the Adelaide metropolitan area, and the inclusion of ‘free travel’ data within the department's public transport patronage figures.
