We Move Perth Forward
Providing Transport & Land Use Insights for Smart Future Planning

Supporting
Evidence-based
decision-making

As cities begin integrating sustainable practices into long-term planning, more rigorous and comprehensive measures are needed to understand the complex ties between land-use and transport choices.

This is where PATREC’s research and expertise in the connected spaces of transport and land use planning can offer insight into trends, patterns and processes and inform innovative solutions that fit the future.

The Planning and Transport Research Centre (PATREC) is a collaboration of leading experts and researchers from the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Department of Transport, Main Roads Western Australia, Western Australian Planning Commission and the Western Australian Local Government Association.
