How Australia compares to the 10 fastest public transport systems in the world
A new study from the Polytechnic University of Turin has compared public transport services around the world in terms of average velocity, sociality and city cohesion. Australia just made the list with Melbourne at number 10.
European cities, Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Athens made the top 5 but in certain rankings, Adelaide and Sydney were also top contenders.
Sydney was high in terms of how many people you could meet on a single commute whereas Adelaide made the list for having a large fraction of the population able to be reached in a regular trip.
