This dissertation is an attempt to provide a causal explanation for the changes in demand for public transport in Hobart which have occurred during the past two decades, with the use of an econometric model.In Chapter l the need for a reappraisal of existing and future plans for road construction in the city areas is examined, followed by a brief discussion of the ways in which the results obtained from this study may be found useful.The second chapter is concerned with a review of three models of the demand for public transport which have been proposed by Australian and overseas authors.Each model considered was an extension of the traditional consumer demand theory, with demand depending on price and income; however certain other behavioural hypotheses are included in each of these models and their contributions are assessed.
