Policy Objectives

PTCBR believes that the provision of high quality public transport services throughout the ACT is essential to ensure equitable and affordable transport options for all Canberrans.

High quality public transport increases ridership, reduces the use and ownership of private vehicles with benefits flowing to individuals and households through reduced costs, the community through reduced pollution and congestion and the government through reduced expenditure on public roads, including externalities such as healthcare costs.

PTCBR is currently preparing a list of policies based on local experience and international best practice that would assist in achieving this goal. When complete, they will be added to this page.
