Steve Prattt has this piece on the new Real Time Information system for ACTION busses and sprays on about the cost, but come on Steve, everyone wants to know how far away their bus is, don’t they?
“In the view of the Government when the next bushfire disaster hits,
at least we will have real time information on hand in order to know
exactly when to catch the bus to flee the fires.
“That’s if the real time information systems are still working, and if
they haven’t been vandalised because there is a shortage of police to
deter property vandals.
“At a time when we have a shortage of police, nurses, and an urgent
need for improvements to ageing ACT infrastructure such as
streetlights and footpaths, and much needed additional reforms to
public housing, we see the Government throwing money at the wrong areas.
