Adelaide, South Australia is a city with a long tradition of state of the art planning of its urban development and transport systems. As a planned ‘new world’ city it has largely escaped many of the traffic and environmental problems that beset other cities. An ongoing feature of its transport planning has been a readiness to adopt, adapt and attempt innovative solutions that are arguably ‘world’s firsts’. This chapter describes two such solutions from the last quarter of the twentieth century: a guided busway and a fully reversible one-way road. Further developments using Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) technologies to meet community goals for improved public transport operations are also described.
