Land Value Capture and the Liverpool to Parramatta Transitway
Professor Mulley had been investigating the way in which the transitway, opened in 2003, has increased land values of residential properties. The first of a number of papers 'Accessibility and residual land value uplift: identifying spatial variations in the accessibility impacts of a bus transitway' (Densmore and Mulley) is available as an ITLS Working Paper.
Multiple purposes at single destination: A key to a better understanding of the relationship between tour complexity and mode choice
