Abstract: This scoping report was prepared for the Desert Knowledge CRC in response to a number of stakeholders who had expressed concerns about the structural impediments that currently limit regional transport in desert Australia and between regional centres and outlying communities. Regional transport is generally seen by governments and businesses as a difficult and high cost exercise, without the flexibility required for the desert environment. The scoping study thus included consideration of the different approaches to regional transport that these institutions could implement to achieve better local mobility. Three broad aims were identified for the study: 1. to identify structural impediments limiting regional transport in desert Australia and between regional centres and outlying communities 2. to examine the approaches available to achieve better local mobility 3. to identify the significant research issues requiring further consideration.
