Public transport is considered to be an efficient solution that can deal with traffic congestion. The thesis aims to develop a more precise approach for assessing the traffic congestion impacts of public transport. The main methodology using to assess the congestion impacts associated with public transport is to contrast the level of congestion on the road network in two scenarios ‘with public transport’ and ‘without public transport’. The findings show that in the morning peak hours, Melbourne’s public transport system contributes to reduce vehicle time travelled and total delay on the road network by around 48%.
