Simon Corbell has announced that despite having already committed to spending $12 million (pretty soon it adds up to real money) on a real time bus information system he’s now open to a public consultation over what it should be doing.
“The recent announcement of the successful tenderer for the first stage of this project has generated a lot of interest and the ACT Government is consulting with the community and key stakeholders to ensure that the system meets the needs of all commuters.
“I will also meet with a group of ANU students who have been working in this field to ensure their views are being taken into account and see how they can be involved in the project.”
A real time passenger information system will see digital displays installed at major bus stations and other selected bus stops and will also provide the community with instant information via the internet, mobile phones, touch screen displays and on bus visual and audio displays.
Apparently a survey will appear at some point on the Transport for Canberra website.
