The Greens’ Amanda Bresnan has shared the news they they’ve been inspecting a double decker bus.
“I was interested to learn that the showcased double decker can carry more passengers than the standard ACTION articulated bus, and is cheaper,” said ACT Greens Transport Spokesperson, Amanda Bresnan MLA.
“One of the issues the Greens are concerned about is peak-hour capacity problems in the ACTION network. It is unacceptable that Canberra’s Canberra commuters are left waiting as a full bus drives by their stop.
“I am interested to know if the Government has considered using double deckers to help ease overcrowding.
“The bus brought to Canberra today was also accessible for older people and people with disability. Issues of the vehicles height and bicycle racks would also need to be considered.
“What is certain is that the Government needs to do something about peak hour crowding; at least by expanding its fleet of high-capacity buses.
But would we have them red? Traditional orange? Or modish green?
