(2) Does the Government have any plans to return bus shelters or seating to Langton Crescent since Network 19 has returned the 57 and 58 to Langton Crescent.

(3) How does Transport Canberra prioritise which stops receive shelters and/or seating.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Passengers can call Access Canberra or use the NXTBUS website up to 90 minutes before they travel to find out whether their service is running. NXTBUS is a live system that is updated at 30 minute intervals and is activated when the driver logs on at the commencement of shift.

(2) The ACT Government has no current plans to upgrade facilities at bus stops on Langton Crescent, Parkes.

(3) The provision of facilities at bus stop, such as seats and shelters, is considered on a case-by-case basis. In making decisions around improvements to facilities at bus stops, Transport Canberra gives priority to compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. Other factors that are considered include the number of customers using the stop, connections that can be made at the stop, the number of services calling at the stop and the feasibility of upgrades in particular locations.
