Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 1 Hansard (17 February) . . Page.. 374..


(2) Proposals by Deane's for the provision of services, where ACTION services are not available, have been considered and approved by the Road Transport Authority, as the regulator of public passenger services. Details of those services are included in the response to question (1). As noted above, the ACT Government is not aware of any current approaches by Deane's requesting approval to offer additional services to ACT patrons.

The Department of Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) has established a Public Transport Working Group to examine issues relating to cross border transport, including the possibility of providing a seamless bus service, with tickets between Deane's and ACTION being transferable.

Matters that will require resolution include the significant difference in fare pricing between Deane's (a commercial venture) and ACTION (which is heavily subsidised by the ACT Government).
