The South Australian community has started commenting on the future of its public transport network, after government launched an opinion forum for
the state's
integrated transport plan.

The South Australian Government
recently called on residents to use an online survey to help with the transport plan.

The call followed an
announcement earlier this year that the State Government had secured $2 million Federal funding to develop an Integrated Transport and Land Use Strategy for South Australia.

South Australian Planning Minister John Rau says the strategy should reflect the needs of all citizens.

"We have developed a detailed online survey that provides a simple platform for people to give their own views on a wide range of transport and land use issues," Rau says.

"This is something I know a lot of people are extremely passionate about and everyone must have a chance to influence such an important strategy for South Australia."

The online survey asks South Australians to consider key issues of sustainability, liveability and prosperity, but to focus on specifics such as public transport, pedestrian movements and land use planning.

The Government expects to produce a draft Integrated Transport and Land Use Strategy in September.

The document will then be released for a comprehensive, state-wide public consultation phase before being finalised by the end of the year.
