This research intends to search for a better understanding of the relationship between urban street network structure and travel behaviors of peoples in South East Queensland. Due to its complex human travel behaviors and ever increase in demand for transportation, transportation could be unsustainable. Unsustainable transport can experience long delay, congestion and eventually could lead to socio-economic and environmental unsustainability of the city and in many cases reduce the benefits and increase its externality. Thus, transportation sustainability is still the key priority of governments and policymakers. Therefore, this research is aiming at addressing the challenges of non-motorized commuters for a sustainable urban transport system.
