Public transport in Tuggeranong has received a mixed review.
The Rapid Routes are receiving good patronage, however the number of overall journeys originating in Tuggeranong are down compared with the same period in the previous year.
Community feedback is suggesting the extended travel time using the suburban collection routes, and distance between homes and the nearest Rapid stop, is making bus travel less popular.
Improved park and ride stops to accommodate more cars, providing secure bike storage and better footpath access are proposals to attract more travellers to the bus network.
The number of overall (bus) journeys originating in Tuggeranong are down compared with...the previous year.
Transport changes are among the issues for which the Tuggeranong Community Council will advocate in future discussions with the ACT government and other bodies.
We are interested in knowing what you consider to be the most important issues affecting our community and what changes could be made to make Tuggeranong a better place to live.
Your feedback will help inform the council on the key issues of concern to residents, and will be used in our discussions with government.
You are invited to complete our on-line survey available at www.tuggeranong.org.au
