The Greens’ Amanda Bresnan is taking credit for the Mitchell Park & Ride facility which Simon Corbell is opening today.
“We want to make it easier for the people of Gungahlin to get to and from places like Civic, Russell, Barton, Kingston and Fyshwick,” Ms Bresnan said.
“The new Mitchell Park & Ride is about providing options for people to park their car safely and for free, and to use a frequent and rapid bus service that takes them to an employment centre.
“It allows people to save on parking and petrol, but it’s also a chance to avoid the stress of peak-hour traffic on Northbourne Avenue.
“Making connections between different transport modes, such as buses and cars, is a key part of moving people around Canberra. Park & Ride facilities play an important part in making Canberra a more convenient and sustainable community.
“Through the Parliamentary Agreement, the Greens have already delivered a Park and Ride and Bike and Ride to Mawson, and these facilities are being designed for Erindale.
