New ACTION website

http://www.action.act.gov.au

Looks like they've followed on from Transport for Canberra's design. It also happens to be mobile-friendly as well, so there's no more need to zoom in.


Personally liking the clean up - looks much better than the old one.

There's a quick finder on the main page to search routes by number - something I'll be using a fair bit in the future for that quick timetable peek.

Cool to see they're vouching pointing to 3rd-party iOS and Android apps too.


The only thing that bugs me is that route pages have been split - so you have to click on a "Go to ..." link to view times in the reverse direction rather than scrolling down. It confused me at first 'cause it looked like the title for the table I was looking at, which is found further up.


What do you think?

whilst browsing the "our fleet" page, there is no mention of the Irisbuses!

There's a few other errors too.

I never knew that the 2-axle Scania L94UB were regarded as "Steer Tag" buses!

Hmmm think you guys a little too critical, just inform them of the errors and move on, life required.

Can you blame them? I'd leave them off as well. ;)  >:D

One thing of concern is Filming and Photography!

I've sought clarification on the photography issue

Website is good.
Two problems though.
One has already been said filming and photography.
And two is really minor and relatively pointless, The Scania K36 diagrams have te logo too far back and also look out of proportion in size. >:D

ACTION advise that the filming and photography page applies only to commercial photographers / filmmakers

I was assuming it was regarding commercial photographers by the way it was worded, I'm also quite sure that has always been on their website, I remember reading something very similar many years ago
