There’s anecdotal evidence about that there has been some confusion on the buses this morning.
Assiduous RiotACT readers will of course have been aware of the network changes but as there was no advertising campaign run here it’s understandable some missed the news.
This morning Chief Minister Gallagher has had a go at reminding everyone:
ACT Chief Minister and Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Katy Gallagher, today announced the start of ACTION’s new Network 12 providing bus passengers with improved services.
“I’m pleased to announce the start of ACTION’s new Network 12 which will extend high frequency services and provide services to new suburbs in Gungahlin including Bonner, Crace, Forde and Casey,” the Chief Minister said.
“Improvements will also be made to existing services in Kippax, Central Canberra, Fyshwick and Majura Park.
UPDATE 28/05/12 10:37: Meanwhile the ACTION website admits they’ve cocked up the upgrade of Google Transit times:
Bus information via Transit for Google Maps will not be available from Monday 28 May to allow for Network 12 timetable information to be integrated into the system. It is estimated the system will go live with the new ACTION timetables and services on Friday 1 June.
