Conversation Co was commissioned to engage with the Box Hill community to better understand the perceived state of public transport in the suburb.
Data was gathered through online forms, surveys and local place-based pop ups to understand what the community wished to see improved, as well as to discuss how changes to the area would impact on their daily commutes.
Discussion topics were analysed in these categories:
- Public Transport
- Streets and Public Spaces
- Walking and Cycling
- Road Safety
- Car Parking
The report generated from this research expressed the community’s desire to see overall improvement to the network that would allow them to travel without needing to rely on personal vehicles. Currently the public transport options in place don’t provide an adequate alternative needed to reduce road congestion in the suburb.
