The Victorian Transport Atlas intends to bring together a number of transport themes and data sets such as:

  • public transport infrastructure
  • car ownership
  • household activity and travel surveys
  • population and employment data.

The first theme released is a summary of the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ journey to work data for 1996, 2001 and 2006. This theme includes:

  • origins and destinations of work journeys
  • methods of travel to work
  • employment and occupation types.

The atlas has data presented for each Victorian local government area.

It will be updated in early 2013 as more data becomes available .
