@mross1984 new network under planning now, better connections and frequency high priority #actvcc

mross1984
@SimonCorbell the cuts of 316/317 were bad enuf but wen w/ends & w/days were different routes, it is now a nitemare. Inconsistent.

SimonCorbell
@mross1984 new network planning is a major task to make a qauntum shift in bus service delivery #actvcc

mross1984
@SimonCorbell well get movin on new network & make it quick and more livable!! And have 16/17 go to tuggers via blue rapid #actvcc

mross1984
@SimonCorbell and consider makin w/day & w/end route numbers same for easy memory for ALL #actvcc

@SimonCorbell network planning is not that hard - make services more direct and stop running services that are empty #actvcc

@geoffrah The issue is empty services always have one or two people that will miss out. Canberra's layout makes it quite difficult. #actvcc

SimonCorbell
@geoffrah new network planning focusing on more direct routes, thanks #actvcc

@SimonCorbell With Deanes ceasing their Airliner service will the government be providing a bus service to Canberra Airport?

SimonCorbell
@Lemon_0712 Govt is aware that Canberra Airport is negotiating with a private provider to continue this service.

RT @SimonCorbell "Canberra Airport is negotiating with a private provider to continue [Airport Bus] service." Why not negotiate with ACTION?

SimonCorbell
@ACTbusspotter its a private contract with the airport,

Bus400
When will we find out who is supplying ACTION's new articulated buses? #actvcc

SimonCorbell
@Bus400 tender underway, should be complete end of year

Rather than start a new topic, ACT Government has responded to my specific questions at the recent #CBRcabinet regarding the next round of bus purchases.

The non answers are as follows:

A bid for funding to meet fleet renewal requirements will be made in line with the budget cycle.

As before, a bid for funding to meet fleet renewal requirements will be made in line with the budget cycle.
