This is not the case with TC's torturous use of plain english.That's what I always understood it to mean, Rapid meaning frequent, it was never about the route length.
Quoting from Team Leader, Customer Experience, Transport Canberra:
The Rapid 6 route refers to the frequency of the service, not the length of time the route takes, the Rapid routes are designed to move residents across the City connecting between town centres.
So, it seems Rapid in TC speak means more often, not quicker.
Make of this what you will.
