Not a lot for ACTION in this year's budget.

However, longer-term funding will be subject to the development of the Transport Reform Strategy.

Capital initiatives:
$1.81m to purchase and install the latest version of HASTUS

Capital upgrades:
$2.6m for Public transport infrastructure / Bus stop upgrades
$0.9m for bus overhauls including seat refurbishments
$0.75m for depot workshop and tool upgrades
$0.11m for bike rack upgrades

Works in progress:
$3.15m for Woden Bus Interchange renovations
$5.736m for replacement of underground tanks (Tuggeranong)
$0.15m for Dickson Bus Interchange design
$0.15m for Gungahlin Bus Interchange design
$0.6m for Erindale Bus Station upgrade [carried forward]
$2.281m for NXTBUS displays and signage [carried forward]

There is a brief mention of bus fare increase in January, but no detail given
