Description - Adelaide's Public Transport - The First 180 Years by Tom Wilson

The beautiful city of Adelaide, capital of South Australia, with a population approaching 1.4 million spread over an area about 90 kilometres long and 50 kilometres wide, has a fascinating public transport history, with many similarities to, but also many differences from, other cities of a similar size. Despite being well planned in 1836 by surveyor Colonel William Light with many straight, wide roads, its good road network has presented many challenges for public transport in that it is very easy to drive a car anywhere during all but the relatively short peak periods.
