“Capital Metro” is the backbone of ACT Labor’s Public Transport policy which also includes fare-free days, more buses, more services and a 7 day a week network.
The ACT Pirate Party public transport policy proposes new investment into the bus network to re-establish service levels from the 1980s.
“Some Canberra residents have to use buses and others choose to use them. The focus of the Action network should be on catering for these passengers. The rest of us like the convenience of our motor vehicles and are not likely to change our habits. It is time the ACT Government realised this and catered in a responsible manner for the motorist.”
In a move to both reduce the pressure on limited parking availability in the Parliamentary Triangle and promote Canberra’s Centenary, ACT Labor has made a $750,000 promise to provide a free parliamentary bus service in 2013.
Free shuttle buses and intelligent transport systems headline the Canberra Liberal’s first election promise on public transport.
