Director of ACTION, James Roncon, today welcomed the launch of ACTION’s new website that will provide bus commuters with an improved and accessible interface for both desktop computers and mobile devices.

“The ACTION website on average receives over 20,000 unique page visits per day with over 50 percent of ACTION’s patrons accessing the website via a mobile device. The new website’s improved functionality and mobile friendly design ensures commuters have the information they need at their fingertips,” Mr Roncon said.

“Part of the redesign includes a responsive web layout that changes the look and feel of the website based on the size of the screen being used. This, coupled with the menu redesign and improved navigation, enables a simple and quick website experience.

“The new website continues to offer users the option of searching ACTION services by route number, suburb or place. The Transit Trip Planner, utilising Google Transit, allows passengers to plan their travel across the ACT by route, destination and arrival point.

“As with any new website there may be some teething issues as the website is rolled over to its new design. We appreciate the community’s patience and feedback as the improved website is implemented,” Mr Roncon said.

Links and bookmarks that allow users to access specific pages on the previous site may need to be re-established. Some search engines (such as Google, Yahoo and Bing) may take a little while to respond to site changes that are now in place.

Feedback on the new website can be provided to ACTION at www.action.act.gov.au or by calling 13 17 10.
