The PTCBR have made a submission on Network 19, the first integrated bus and light rail public transport network in the territories history. The PTCBR support the ACT Governments active transport and public transport programs, including the introduction of light rail and integrated public transport services. With some modifications, the proposed Network will resolve long standing complaints about the local bus network, and build on the success of the rapid bus network, while establishing light rail as the backbone future more frequent local services can connect to.

Eight would be rapid bus, and one would be light rail. The announcement was made at the opening of the new $4 million dollar Dickson bus interchange, directly across the road from the Dickson light rail stop on Northbourne Avenue.
