By johnboy 30 May 2011 21

Chief Minister Katy Gallagher has announced the thrilling news that slaray packaging of bus fares is kicking off for the ACT PS from 1 June 2011.

From 1 June 2011 the ACT Government will provide ACT Public Service employees and their families an incentive to get on the bus and reduce their travel costs with plans to provide access to salary packaging for ACTION bus fares outlined in Estimates today by Chief Minister Katy Gallagher MLA.

“I am very pleased to announce this important initiative which will see ACT Public Service employees save up to between $300 and $400 a year on the cost of public transport for travel between home and work,” Ms Gallagher said.

“As the second biggest employer in Canberra with a workforce of nearly 20,000 this is a significant commitment to our employees and the community.”

“In addition to providing savings to ACT public servants and their families, the introduction of this initiative will also hopefully see greater patronage on our buses which in turn will lessen the carbon footprint of the ACT.”

Anyone want to predict takeup?

“As for the comment that the services here are “crowded”, lol. A little bit for maybe 30 minutes in the morning?”

I would speculate that is when most people are using them and so it is a more common experience than not.
