A new survey has revealed that road transport is more expensive in Australia than in most other countries.
Key points:The survey by the Australian National University, conducted between November and January, found that the cost of road transport was more expensive than in Australia’s three biggest cities, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
The survey found that road traffic was the most expensive in all three cities and the cost was more than three times higher than in London, which has a higher cost of living than Australia.
The cost of a road transport ticket in Melbourne is $8.30 while the cost in Sydney is $13.30.
In Brisbane, the cost is $15.50, while in Melbourne it is $29.50.
In Sydney, a ticket for a taxi is $10.10.
In Melbourne, a carpooling ticket is $25.50 and a car rental is $38.50 in Sydney.
In Queensland, a road travel ticket is only $18.50 while a rental car is $50.
The report found that a car could cost more than a roadtrip in Brisbane, which costs $150.
In the same way, the cheapest car to rent in Brisbane is a four-wheel drive Honda Civic, while the cheapest rental in Sydney costs $250.
A car rental in Brisbane could cost you between $60 and $80 per week, while a car in Sydney could cost between $200 and $300 per week.
In total, a trip from Melbourne to Brisbane could take between eight and 15 hours, while one from Sydney to Brisbane would take between 14 and 17 hours.
The research was commissioned by the Queensland Government.
It found that an average Australian spends about $20,000 a year on road transport, compared with about $7,000 in other countries including Australia.
“Our research suggests that Australian drivers spend an average of about $16,000 per year on roads and public transport in Australia,” Professor Andrew Gaffney from the university’s Faculty of Management and Information Systems, said.
“However, the average cost per passenger kilometre (kilometre) is almost twice as high in Australia as it is in the United States, and even in New Zealand and New Zealanders the cost per kilometre is about four times higher.”
The cost was higher in Sydney than in Brisbane but was about double in Sydney, Sydney’s CBD, and the rest of the state.
The cheapest car in the state is a Toyota Corolla, while it costs $30,000 to rent a one-way car in Melbourne.
The costs were higher in Brisbane than in Sydney but were about twice as much in Brisbane.
Drivers in the Brisbane CBD could cost $30.50 to $75 per week to travel to and from work, whereas a car commute to and away from work in Sydney cost $65.
Mr Gaffneys said that while the average price of a car was higher than other countries, it was not a reason to be concerned about the cost.
“There is still some room for improvement in terms of road pricing, particularly for drivers,” he said.
“The average price in Brisbane and the CBD is about five times the price in Sydney.”
Roads are often more expensive for cyclists and pedestrians than motorists.
