Chief Minister Gallagher’s people have finally put online her tweaks to the Park and Ride system:
ACT Chief Minister and Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Katy Gallagher, announced today that the Park and Ride permit system has been improved with additional permit sites, the introduction of a ‘city-wide’ permit and the development of designated permit parking areas.
“From Monday 2 July 2012, changes will be implemented to the Park and Ride permit system to improve accessibility to the service, which help reduce car only trips, which in turn alleviates traffic on our roads and pressure on our town centre parking,” the Chief Minister said.
“Two new permit areas have been established at Mawson and Mitchell to ensure that users of the Park and Ride service have more opportunities to get a car park and continue their journey via bus. Fifteen dedicated Park and Ride spaces have been allocated at the Mitchell site and 64 spaces at Mawson to assist with access.

“The new improvements will also see the introduction of a single ‘city-wide’ permit that can be used across Canberra’s five permit Park and Ride facilities, providing users with greater flexibility in their transport options,” the Chief Minister said.
