The ABC has the sad news that the Nightrider bus trial has ended with the average cost per passenger carried around $400.
That’s more expensive than a flight from Canberra to Hayman Island right now on the Virgin Blue Website.
The Greens are claiming the service was never advertised properly (certainly they did not advertise here), Mr Stanhope, however, says 10% of the budget for the service went on marketing (in which case one has to wonder who’s made like a bandit on that one).
There’s also the question of how long a service needs to operate in order be habit forming compared to say, taking a chance on drink driving or just standing in the taxi line hoping to not get punched.
But what do you think?
