The Real Transport Challenges: A Call for Vision
The PTUA has launched its document The Real Transport Challenges: A Call for Vision to demonstrate the need for rail and tram extensions and more frequent bus services to mitigate rising traffic congestion and increasing petrol prices and make public transport a viable alternative to driving.
“This document is a call to action for the political parties. While we have seen much focus on pricing issues we have seen little action on improving the frequency of services or to extend public transport into growth areas”, said PTUA President Daniel Bowen. “Ultimately people will not use public transport if it is not frequent, direct and fast”.
