Mr. Shane Rattenbury, Minister for TAMS

There are a large number of people commuting from Gungahlin to Woden. Currently the only option is to travel to City interchange and catch a bus to Woden interchange.

The buses are usually full and it takes more than an hour to reach Woden. A direct service to Woden from Gungahlin via Gungahlin Drive will be of immense help to the office-goers.

UPDATE: 29 July 2014

The petition along with the signatures has been submitted to Mr. Shane Rattenbury, Minister for TAMS today along with a copy to the Chief Minister.

Any response will be updated here. Thank you.

We the undersigned call on the ACTION Buses, Canberra to operate direct buses from Gungahlin to Woden during peak hours.

This service can possibly be extended to Tuggeranong.

This will have the following benefits:
1. Reduce travel time by half
2. Reduce the congestion at City as people do not need to travel via City.
3. More people are likely to catch the bus instead of driving if direct service is offered.

Possible Route:
Via Flemington Road - Mitchell - Gungahlin Drive - Woden.

The route on Google Map: http://goo.gl/RRnF0o

Possible timings:
Gungahlin to Woden: 7:00am, 7:30am, 8:00am, 8:30am
Woden to Gungahlin: 4:30pm, 5:00pm, 5:30pm, 6:00pm

At the least please consider running a 3 months trial to find out the real patronage.

Thank you.
