The Public Transport Association of Canberra might not be known to you. They are big fans of the light rail. Light rail is seen as a way of moving away from car dependence by providing an alternative. The proportion of the population using public transport is referred to as the mode share. Public Transport is part of the active travel mix.
The Public Transport Association of Canberra (PTCBR) has called for explicit mode share targets to be included in the ACT Transport Recovery Plan, which has been foreshadowed in the newly released ACT Transport Strategy 2020.
“There is a lot to like in the new Transport Strategy, in particular the commitment to the development of a light rail spine along the high-demand routes between Canberra’s town centres,” said PTCBR Chair Ryan Hemsley.MEDIA RELEASE – Public Transport Association of Canberra calls for explicit targets in forthcoming ACT Transport Recovery Plan, Public Transport Association of Canberra (PTCBR), 27/8/2020
