SHANE Rattenbury has announced the start of work for a new Park and Ride bus facility in Gungahlin.
“The project will include about 200 parking spaces conveniently located near bus stops on Valley Avenue and Hibberson Street. The Red Rapid bus routes currently service the area every 10 minutes during the peak period and every 15 minutes during the off-peak. This will be improved to every 5 minutes during the peak period with the introduction of Network 14 in mid 2014,” Shane said.
“The facility combines vehicle use with bus travel to give patrons a quick and hassle free trip to Canberra’s busy town centres while saving them money and the stress of finding a car park in town.
“Importantly, this new facility will be located just a short walk from the future light rail network.”
