Up for a little light reading on why public transport is important, and what needs to be done to make it better? The government is coming out with its Transport & Liveability Statement next week, but in the mean time, the PTUA’s book from 2002 “It’s Time To Move” is now available for download as a PDF.
PS. A random Melbourne PT fact that occasionally comes up in conversation, to which people respond with surprise, so just thought I’d mention it here: on the top of the fare gates at city railway stations are yellow lights. These flash when concession ticketholders go through, so any inspectors present know which people to ask for concession cards.
