The Chiefly Stanhope has put out a media release purportedly celebrating the success of the REDEX bus service:
More Canberrans are catching a bus as a direct result of the ACT Government’s REDEX bus service, which runs every 15 minutes between Gungahlin and Kingston, Chief Minister and Minister for Transport Jon Stanhope said today.
ACTION surveys have revealed that 61 per cent of passengers are catching buses more often because of the high frequency service and 77 per cent of bus users prefer REDEX over ACTION’s regular services.
Who’d have thought frequent and fast bus services would be popular? That really goes against the heart of the ACTION doctrine!
