Brett's list of bits - stuff and things as well as things and stuff...
So we should see these in Perth by 2050 at the latest.

When there is a culture of cycling (and I don't mean the lycra clad variety) I think it makes cities a nicer place.

Is this the total answer? No. But it's a start. However, we need to consider the cultural problem faced in Australia. When we stop kids from riding to school or to the playground (or whatever) then we stop them riding as teenagers and adults. And that's the problem.

Although it is resources-boom driven, Perth has many of the same problems as Vancouver. Hopefully we'll think of a smart way to make cities more livable for the people who are actually there.

And they're easy to build. This is the sort of thing we need in Perth to start building out the inner suburbs. The day of the quarter-acre block for everyone is well and truly over - but we haven't seen high density stuff yet.

And then they wonder why people don't take public transport on the weekend. Because the frequency of PT on the weekend is way lower than during the week! And it often doesn't go where people want to go (even in Melbourne, with a good train network and great inner-city tram network). Governments need to be continually expanding their public transportation system - otherwise roads will get clogged.

Half a step between Uber and regular public transport - a personalized but shared bus service.

This report talks about how bad Perth is - many people do not live within 10km of where they work and this contributes to commute times; traffic congestion and all that stuff.

With the ever-increasing price of oil (and electricity for those who drive electric cars) I think that the days of the Australian dream (large house in the suburbs, garden, all that stuff) is well and truly over. We should be looking at higher-density living that is closer to amenities (work, shopping, entertainment).
