What proportion of trips to work are via (a) car and (b) bus (i) since the new bus timetable began and (ii) in each year since 2004.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Trips to work data is not collected by the Office of Transport. This information is available from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. My Department estimates that, based on ACTION's ticketing data, the proportion of trips to work by bus are as follows:

2004

6.34%

2005

6.87%

2006

7.51%

2007

7.34%.

After five weeks of operation of Network 08, there has been a total increase in adult boardings on regular weekdays of 7.4% compared to the average in 2007/08 under the previous network. On Tuesday, 22 July 2008, a milestone of 26,100 adult boardings in one day was achieved. ACTION is now regularly recording daily adult boardings of over 24,000.

Electric scooters—registration

(Question No 2108)

DR FOSKEY asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 25 June 2008:

(1) Could the Minister advise the registration arrangements and charges for electric scooters;

(2) Is the Government considering lowering the costs of registering electric scooters in the ACT given that these scooters are low emission;

(3) Will the ACT Government advocate that the Commonwealth Government establish or recommend a standard regulatory framework to enable and support the increased use of non-polluting transport options such as electric scooters.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

1. The registration arrangements are the same for any moped or motorcycle. From 1 July 2008 the registration fee for electric mopeds and motorcycles will be $69.35 which is a 20% concession on the non-electric moped/motorcycle registration fee of $86.70.

2. No

3. No
