Shane Rattenbury is celebrating the patronage figures for the centenary loop bus service:

Canberra’s new Centenary Loop bus has proven to be a success in its first month with passenger numbers averaging around 240 per day.

“I’m pleased to say that the Centenary Loop bus has been a very popular addition to Canberra’s attractions, and comments from passengers have been overwhelmingly positive,” Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury, said today.

“On weekends the new Route 100 Centenary Loop service is being used by more than 500 people over the two days, and the highest recorded patronage for any one day occurred on Friday 1 March when 478 people caught the service.

“Feedback on the Centenary Loop has been excellent and it is encouraging to get comments from people who are visiting Canberra and have travelled on the bus several times during their stay, as well as Canberrans who are regularly using the service to move around the city.

Here in the bunker we wonder how many people a hard working rickshaw cyclist could move in a day.

I think I counted 240 derros wandering through the interchange today.

No, it’s just the one. He’s really into his walking.

So, if one needs to get somewhere, and then to get back to where one originated, the service is actaully being used by closer to 250 people over two days.

How many services do they run? i.e. how many pax on each service?

I think I counted 240 derros wandering through the interchange today. Do people really get buses to ‘move around the city’? I work over at City West, but wouldn’t really consider anywhere in the city too far to walk.
