Moving Canberra – transport strategy from 2019 to 2045

The ACT Government today released the ‘Moving Canberra 2019-2045 Integrated Transport Strategy’ policy paper. This is open for consultation into the New Year. The PTCBR will host a public meeting in early 2019 devoted to this.
You can download the full Integrated Transport Strategy from the PTCBR website.

PTCBR 2018 AGM and Public Meeting

The Public Transport Association of Canberra, Annual General Meeting for 2018 will be held on Tuesday December 18. Following the AGM, there will be a public meeting. Two speakers have been invited to present on topics of interest to our members: Tilo Franz – Canberra Metro – Light Rail operations and Pam Nelson – TCCS – Light Rail Stage Two

Our wishlist for better public transport in Canberra – the 2019 Budget submission from the PTCBR to the ACT Government

Every year the ACT Government invites the public and community groups to tell them what they would like to see the Government allocate funds to over the next year. It’s an excellent opportunity for our association, representing the users of public transport in Canberra, to let the Government know what we expect. In our Budget submission this year we have asked for a split between the passenger experience (making it better) and long term planning. We have also asked that Canberras iconic bunker shelters receive heritage listing!

Public Transport Association of Canberra pleased that light rail stage two can now proceed through the Parliamentary Zone, after the JSCNCET issues its report on Commonwealth approvals for ACT light rail

The PTCBR has welcomed today’s release of the JSCNET report on Commonwealth and Parliamentary approvals for the proposed stage 2 of the ACT light rail project, arguing that the report provides much-needed certainty around the second stage of Canberra’s most important infrastructure project. The Committees report means that the NCA and the ACT Government can resume working on a light rail route through the Parliamentary Zone that can serve the people of Canberra, service national institutions and satisfy heritage concerns.
