The Greens’ Amanda Bresnan is heralding the triumph of what she sees as The Greens Red Rapid bus routes:
The latest ACTION passenger figures obtained by the ACT Greens reveal the Red Rapid has quickly grown to become the fourth most popular bus route in the ACT.
The ACT Greens negotiated the introduction of the Red Rapid as part of its commitment to more frequent buses, guaranteed through the Parliamentary Agreement with the ACT Labor Party.
“Red Rapid buses transported over 150,000 passengers between October and December 2011,” said Greens Transport Spokesperson, Amanda Bresnan MLA.
“The Red Rapid is a great foundation for bringing better, convenient public transport services to Canberra, particularly to Gungahlin residents who’ve missed out on decent buses for a long time.
“Improving frequency and reliability in Canberra’s public transport system is key. The Red Rapid runs every 15 minutes, taking passengers from Gungahlin through to the City, Barton and Fyshwick. From mid-2012 it will run every 10 minutes in peak hour.
The busiest routes are 2, and the Blue Rapids.
For mine I can’t see “Red Rapid” without thinking of a certain unsavoury South Park episode, but I suppose that’s my cross to bear.
And your’s too now:
