Roban on Green Paper
Government launches transport consultation
Improved public transport could be in the pipeline after the Government launched a consultation.
Transport minister Walter Roban told the House of Assembly a green paper on transport would bring “forward-thinking solutions” by early June.
He said more than 50 local and overseas groups had been consulted and a general consensus had emerged on upgrades to public transport and the use of technology such as digital tickets.
A social media campaign and two surveys are shortly to be launched, with the results to be published in June.
The policy document is the first since the National Transportation Management Report released in 2002.
Mr Roban told MPs: “The plan is to identify realistic and fiscally prudent recommendations that will be presented to Cabinet.”
