More than 10,000 pieces of feedback about the proposed new bus network have been received by Transport Canberra, which will help to build a new public transport network for Canberra.

Phase 2 of the public consultation on the proposed bus network for Canberra closed on 12 August 2018.

During the recent consultation there were:

  • 9735 online surveys completed
  • 504 emails received
  • More than 350 people attended Community Council meetings
  • More than 1,100 conversations at pop up roadshows
  • More than 90 phone calls through Access Canberra

This significant and unprecedented response speaks to the important role our public transport network plays in the daily lives of Canberrans.

Recent feedback from the community, mostly from existing bus users, covered a range of topics including ‘Xpresso’ bus services, many of which are being replaced by more frequent ‘Rapid’ services, school services and areas where bus routes are changing, as well as some great suggestions about how to make the network easier to use.

The ACT Government is currently reviewing this feedback and will use all the data received to inform decision making. An overview of what feedback was given and how the network will be implemented will be available for the public later this year.

The new bus network begins early 2019. For further information visit www.transport.act.gov.au
