The average expenditure on public transportation per person and the popularity of the same on a typical day in Darwin City are portrayed in the given charts.
As seen in the charts, a person has to spend the most between 1 am and 5 pm, when the preference for this mode is the least. That is when a mere 2% of commuter preference is recorded, the cost of travel is the maximum($8). On the other hand, the cost is seen very reasonable between 5 pm and 9 pm, when over a third of Darwin’s population depends on this type of transport. When the passengers’ preference fluctuates between 10 and 17%, from 9 am to 5 pm, the cost of the travel remains the same at $4. In the morning, between 5 am and 9 am, nearly a quarter of Darwin’s population prefer to travel by this mode, and here, the average cost is $5 per person. This cost increases by $1 between 9 pm and 1 am, and here, the popularity of public transportation shrinks to just over a tenth.
Overall, it is clear that the passenger preference and the cost of travel are inversely proportional in the city.
