As well as trialling a lower cost service, we propose to introduce a capped fare at weekends in the lead-up to the Christmas period. We have allocated $200,000 towards this programme.

We will also part-fund a discount scheme for tertiary student bus fares. The project aims to enable more tertiary students to travel by bus. We’ve set aside $75,000 for the service and expect to see contributions from the regional council and support from the universities.

When?

Ongoing.

How much?

$275,000 has been set aside for subsidies to increase bus usage.
