I received this in an email today which could be of interest to those who care about the future of public transport in the ACT.
A meeting to discuss reforming (the ACT LRC) as a group to explore options for a light rail network in the ACT region.
The initial meeting will be held at the

(in the tram which is located in the dinning room). The meeting time is
5.30pm to 7pm Wednesday 22nd August
There are a number of matters that indicate that this might be a good time to try to get some focus on a light rail network. These include:
1) The Action\ Public transport enquiry, that is due on the 30th August.
2) Options re Federal Government funding for public transport/ environmental initiatives. Should there be a change of government.
3) Continuing media interest in light rail as a public transport option for the ACT region.
