    • Main application question: Around the world, Covid-19 has caused major disruptions to the way we work and commute. Public transport has always played a critical role in moving large numbers of people, however within the pandemic it is not a mode of transport where people can easily maintain appropriate social distancing – as required by public health advice. With the increasing number of people working from home, and the rise in useage of ride sharing services in urban areas, how do you think rail passenger services will play a part in the future of Perth’s transport network? Describe what you think it will it look like at a metro  level, and for intercity and interstate travel?

 Applications will be judged based on the quality of the Main Application
Successful applicants will be required to fund their own travel and accommodation to attend the Conference or attend online.
